  • Comments on marine litter in oceans, seas and beaches: Characteristics and impacts 

    Anfuso, G.; Lynch, Kevin; Williams, A.T.; Perales, J.A.; Pereira da Silva, J.A.; Nogueira Mendes, R.; Maanan, M.; Pretti, C.; Pranzini, E.; Winter, C.; Verdejo, E.; Ferreira, M.; Veiga, J. (JSciMed Central, 2015-06-11)
    Abstract Marine litter is observed along shorelines, pelagic, benthic marine and lake systems all around the globe. On beaches, litter creates aesthetic and related economic problems because a clean beach is one of the ...
  • Consideration of coastal risk in the Irish spatial planning process 

    Flannery, Wesley; Lynch, Kevin; Ó Cinnéide, Micheál (Elsevier, 2014-11-29)
    The vulnerability of coastal areas to associated hazards is increasing due to population growth, development pressure and climate change. It is incumbent on coastal governance regimes to address the vulnerability of coastal ...
  • The fetch effect on aeolian sediment transport on a sandy beach: a case study from Magilligan Strand, Northern Ireland 

    Lynch, Kevin; Jackson, Derek W. T.; Cooper, J. Andrew G. (Wiley, 2016-04-22)
    Experiments were conducted on Magilligan Strand, Northern Ireland, to assess the influence of the fetch effect on aeolian sediment transport. During each experiment surface sediments were uniformly dry and unhindered by ...
  • Field characterization of three-dimensional lee-side airflow patterns under offshore winds at a beach-dune system 

    Delgado-Fernandez, Irene; Jackson, Derek W. T.; Cooper, J. Andrew G.; Baas, Andreas C. W.; Beyers, J. H. Meiring; Lynch, Kevin (American Geophysical Union, 2013-05-22)
    Characterization of three-dimensional (3D) airflow remains elusive within a variety of environments and is particularly challenging over complex dune topography. Previous work examining airflow over and in the lee of dunes ...
  • Foredune accretion under offshore winds 

    Cooper, J. Andrew G.; Jackson, Derek W. T.; Lynch, Kevin (Elsevier, 2007)
    Experiments carried out at Magilligan Strand on the north coast of Ireland suggest that topographic steering of offshore winds is an important facet of the aeolian sediment transport system at this location. A five-day ...
