Research highlights  Examination of SST and SPM images of the southern North Sea shows pronounced mesoscale variability.  The Rhine ROFI, East-Anglia Plume and a seasonal thermal front dominate SST and SPM signals.  Harmonic analysis highlights pronounced seasonal and spring–neap variability.  Tides and waves control stratification and hence the(More)
In this master thesis the residual circulation in the North Sea is investigated. It has been shown that the numerical models used in this thesis (DCSMv5 and DCSMv6) give a rather low representation of the actual circulation pattern in the North Sea. The dominating forces which cause residual currents in the North Sea are the tidal forcings, meteorological(More)
The 63Cu and 65Cu NQ R transitions in powder samples o f cuprous oxide have been in­ vestigated from 77 to 500 K and at room temperature after annealing up to 1100 K Significant differences in T \ , NQ R linewidth A v, and their temperature dependences were found among the samples prepared in different ways. For Cu20 samples obtained in low temperatures(More)
The approaches taken to describe and develop spatial discretisations of the domains required for geophysical simulation models are commonly ad hoc, model or application specific and under-documented. This is particularly acute for simulation models that are flexible in their use of multi-scale, anisotropic, fully unstructured meshes where a relatively large(More)
tal and vertical components of velocity, salinity and suspended particulate matter are presented. Turbulent Prandtl numbers are found to increase with stratification and to become larger than 1. Consequently, the vertical turbulent mass transport is suppressed by buoyancy forces, before the turbulent kinetic energy (TKE) and vertical turbulent momentum(More)

The 2010 Chile megathrust earthquake, with a magnitude of 8.8 on the Richter magnitude scale, occurred on February 27, 2010 at 06:34 UTC and initiated a devastating tsunami which severely hit the central coast of Chile. An intriguing aspect of this tsunami is the delayed arrival of a destructive wave, larger than the initial wave, at Talcahuano harbour(More)
6 The South-Holland coast of the Netherlands undergoes the influence of the Rhine river plume released from the Rot-terdam waterways. An experiment, STRAINS, was conducted to study the impact of the fresh water on the nearshore hydrodynamics and sand transport. As part of the experiment, an instrumented bottom frame measured the near-bed hydrodynamics at 12(More)
