The focus of this research is to introduce the application of the polynomial neural network of the group method of data handling (GMDH) for the first time in the regional area of the New South Wales state of Australia. Within this regional context, temperature data are modeled to assess its projected variation impacts on rainfall depth due to clima...
Article
Full-text available
This study furthers the utilisation of the parametric group method of data handling (GMDH) in assessing the possibility of rainfall modelling and prediction, using publicly available temperature and rainfall data. In using ordinary GMDH approaches, the modelling is inconclusive with no clear consistency demonstrated through coefficients of determin...

Developing countries face risks from coastal hazards that are being amplified by climate change. The selection of effective adaptation interventions to manage these risks requires a sufficiently accurate assessment of the coastal hazard at a given location. Yet challenges remain in terms of understanding local coastal risks given the coarseness of...

Conference Paper
This paper shares insights gained from members of a Community of Practice (CoP) who jointly designed and developed Interactive Oral Assessments (IOAs) for their online subjects in the first half of 2021 as part of a broader institutional project to improve online assessment practice across a multi-campus regional NSW university. Meetings of the CoP...
Presentation
During the pandemic last year, universities had to transition their teaching and assessments from face-to-face to online in a short period of time. Administering the exams online presented its own challenges. In a bid of improve assessment practice and making it sustainable for online delivery, academics have been looking for ways to develop authen...

Selection of effective adaptation interventions to manage these risks requires a sufficiently accurate assessment of the coastal hazard at a given location. Yet challenges remain in terms of understanding local coastal risks given the coarseness of glob...
Article
Coastal structures play a major role in protecting people and property given the increasing threat of climate-change-induced flooding. Hence, an accurate prediction of wave overtopping for each structure is required to protect both people and properties on the structure’s lee side. In this study, a formula set is developed for predicting the mean w...
Article
Full-text available
Wave overtopping is considered an important aspect when designing waterfront or sea-defense structures, making it a part of any design to predict the overtopping rate. Because overtopping is quite a complex phenomenon, most of the previous studies were focused on deriving empirical formulas using data collected from laboratory tests. This paper, in...
Article
Multipurpose Artificial Reefs (MPARs) are structures placed in the nearshore to protect the coast, enhance surfing conditions and ecology. Narrowneck reef is the first MPAR aimed to protect the coast with secondary goal of enhance surfing. Since then, few other structures such as Narrowneck have been deployed and limited data is available in terms...

This paper focuses on the design of river-based submerged vane matrices in a regional Australian context. The specific study site is proximal to intake screens within the riverbed that experiences continual clogging from sediment deposition. The local authority experiences discontinuous supply to the water-treatment plant owing to a high sediment c...
Article
Full-text available
Longshore sediment transport (LST) prediction is still a challenging task in coastal engineering, due to complexity in affecting physical processes. There have been studies to develop tools to predict the LST rate, but there is still room to revisit methods and data previously collected to achieve a more robust formula. In this study, an extensive...
Article
Among the state-of-the-art methods to study coastal processes using numerical modeling, input reduction techniques are advantageous with a significant reduction of required resources, particularly when conducting long-term simulations. This paper evaluates the suitability of these techniques to perform an accelerated morphological simulation, using...
Article
Small tidal inlets with an entrance width of less than 50 m or a cross-sectional area of less than 100 m² have not been investigated as often as their larger counterparts. To discern the major processes responsible for entrance infilling in a small inlet system, the hydrosedimentological processes in the annually dredged Currumbin Creek (Australia)...
Article
Small tidal inlets are found to be more sensitive to anthropogenic alteration than their larger counterparts. Such alterations, although typically supported by technical design reports, sometimes require amendments or modification. One of the most suitable tools to conduct the necessary studies in this regard is numerical modelling, since the behav...
Article
Prediction of wave overtopping rate is an important step in the functional design of vertical coastal structures. In this study, scaling arguments and data mining approaches were used to derive formulae for the prediction of wave overtopping rate at fully vertical and nearly vertical impermeable solid smooth structures. An extensive database mainly...

CONTEXT Despite the degree of progress reached in regard to different learning theories, as well as students’ approaches to learning, some aspects of students’ attitudes are still unknown. In fact, the total mark is the only indicator of the level of success or failure in the majority of current tertiary institutions. Hence, access to the details...

BACKGROUND OR CONTEXT The classroom response system (CRS) is one of the methods of blended learning combined with the best features of face-to-face interaction and it is increasingly used in different developed countries including Australia. In brief, a CRS consists of a radio signal transmitter or “clicker” in hand of the students/audience by whic...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The investigation of long-term morphological changes of a tidal-inlet using process-based models is a complicated and resource dependant task. To date, a number of input reduction techniques have been utilised to reduce the complexity of the modelling tasks; amongst them the wave condition has been shown to be of significant importance. Rapid and s...

Sediment transport is regarded as an important process that can significantly affect coastal areas and nearby structures. Understanding the aspects involved in movement of sediments is challenging. There are numerous methods and approaches to identify the amount of transported sediments either through actual measurement or implementing numerical mo...
Conference Paper
BACKGROUND Understanding the factors which lead to student success or failure has long been an important matter for educators. Researchers like Zimmer et al. (1996) have focused on a particular science course to find the factors which lead to success, whereas others like Tynjälä et al. (2005) have examined an entire engineering program or degree t...
Technical Report
Tidal inlets provide safe navigation routes as well as provision of recreational area. The back barrier water of tidal inlets is generally a calm environment that can act as sinks for the sea transporting alongshore sediments, which results in the sediment accumulation of the inlet entrance. However, due to the governing tidal force in tidal inlets...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Many tidal inlets are actively monitored to investigate the change in flood or ebb shoals, as these sand deposits can have a major influence on the sediment budget of the adjacent coast. However, here it is hypothesized that the shores of the back barrier area can also act as a source of sediment to be considered in the sediment budget. Therefore,...
Article
Full-text available
Small tidal inlets are important features of coastal areas, in terms of provision of access from a back barrier water-body to the ocean as well as periodic circulation of fresh nutrients for the local ecology. Usually, dimensional and geometrical characteristics contribute significantly to morphological stability or instability of a particular inle...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Periodic variation of water level due to tidal forces was first explained by Galileo Galilei in 1632. Thence several calculation methods have been used by scientists to predict tides. Recently also, many different computer models have been produced. Based on these modelled outputs, tidal variation predictions are generated for important ports and w...

This study is part of a broader research project to build longer, more durable and stable tidal-inlet entrance channels in Currumbin and Tallebudgera Creeks. The sediment exchange and associated maintenance dredging of the inlets are also inherently linked to the development of a strategy to address the present vulnerability of the development-back...
Conference Paper
This study is part of a broader research project to build a longer, more durable and stable tidal-inlet entrance channels in Tallebudgera Creek. The Creek is one of several small tidal inlets in southeastern Queensland, Australia. A long history of morphological changes of the mouth and entrance channel has made the local authority perform series o...
