Current projects and collaboration
Coastal Evolution - Investigating the influences of oceanic and climatic variables on shaping soft sediment coastlines using the Coastal Evolution Model (CEM). The model initially developed by Murray and colleagues at Duke University, USA, simulates shoreline development in response to deep-water wave climates. The model can also accommodate variable substrate hardness and distributed coastal erosion rates enabling simulation of coastline evolution when sediment is supplied from an eroding shoreface. A framework was created to enable ensemble modelling of wave climate and other initialising parameters, factors which are likely to vary with climate change. This project is currently focused on the spiral natured Holderness coastline, Lincs, UK.
Landscape Evolution Modelling - The CAESAR-DESC Platform (CEP) allows the interactions that exist between Earth systems at a range of spatio-temporal scales to be explored, by coupling current landscape evolution modelling technologies to a host of new geo-processing modules. CEP currently uses the CAESAR model as its kernel; a two-dimensional cellular automaton landscape evolution model which has a modular design and great versatility in the range of simulated spatio-temporal scales.
NAO - Through this joint project with the University of Exeter we attempt to better understand the role of the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) in driving climatic variability during the Late Holocene by quantifying the nature and strength of the long-term relationship between the NAO and storminess over Europe.
