Estimating the parameters of ocean wave spectra

Estimating the parameters of ocean wave spectra

Understanding the characteristics of wind-generated waves is important for modelling structural responses in ocean engineering. This paper explores statistical techniques to improve the understanding of estimated parameters of wind-generated waves and help oceanographers gain insights into their behaviour.

A semantic approach to enable data integration for the domain of flood risk management

A semantic approach to enable data integration for the domain of flood risk management

This paper explores how flood risk management can utilise the exponential increase in ‘big’data’ generated by a range of sources including satellites, mobile phones, ground-based sensors and citizen science. It proposes approaches to collate, integrate and query data from unstructured and disparate data sources.

A risk-based network analysis of distributed in-stream leaky barriers for flood risk management

A risk-based network analysis of distributed in-stream leaky barriers for flood risk management

This network model highlights the need for robust design of nature-based flood risk measures and allows rapid assessment of the whole-system performance of leaky barriers in real stream networks.
