How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Research includes: Environmental monitoring of coastal systems using drone/photogrammetry (Pix4D, ERDAS, ArcPro); Numerical modelling (MIKE 21, MIKE 3); Remote sensing using GIS and satellite imagery (ArcGIS, ENVI); Physical modelling and testing of coastal structures; Bathymetric surveys using singlebeam echosounder and jetski (Leica Infinity); Sediment transport analysis; Topographic analysis with Leica GNSS system; Data exchange standards, processing, monitoring, plotting, and visualization (NetCDF, GRIB, ISO, XML).
Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) that treat both foul and storm wastewater will experience significant pressure due to changing precipitation patterns and other geophysical parameters. Limited work has been done to understand the links between factors such as tidal and river levels, precipitation, and influent volumes to WWTPs. This paper analys...
This paper presents the observed morphological evolution of a multilevel beach cusp system in Long Strand, Co. Cork, Ireland. The surveys were carried out with an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) system between March and September 2019. From this site, three levels of beach cusps on the beachface (i.e., lower beach level, mid beach level and upper bea...
his research presents a study on the morphodynamic evolution of the Rossbeigh coastal barrier and its dune system, located in Dingle Bay, County Kerry, Ireland. The study examines the evolution of the system over a 19-year period (2001–2019) through remote sensing, geographic information system (GIS) analysis, and field-based surveys. This research...
Nuyts, S.; Murphy, J.; Li, Z., and Hickey, K., 2020. A methodology to assess the morphological change of a multilevel beach cusp system and their hydrodynamics: Case study of Long Strand, Ireland. In: Malvárez, G. and Navas, F. (eds.), Global Coastal Issues of 2020. Journal of Coastal Research, Special Issue No. 95, pp. 593-598. Coconut Creek (Flor...
A sequence of high elevation sands containing both broken and whole marine shells, as well as many mega-sized, raft-shaped boulders (1-3m across) has been discovered at Tralispean Bay, West Cork, Ireland. Ground-Penetrating Radar (GPR), ground surveying and differential GPS (dGPS) show that the sediments cover an area of c.0.75ha, reaching a maximu...
In current design standards and practises, the only widely accepted method to determine the wave pressure profiles induced by wave overtopping on a vertical structure or wall behind the crest of a rubble mound breakwater or any armour slope is physical modelling. This paper presents the results of 2D physical model tests where the spatial distribut...
Increasing the spatial resolution of air quality assessments in urban environments is designated as a priority area within current research. Biomagnetic monitoring and air quality modelling are both methodologies able to provide information about the spatial variation of particulate pollutant levels within urban environments. This study evaluates b...
