Simulation of Andaman 2004 tsunami for assessing impact on Malaysia
Mistakenly perceived as safe from the hazards of tsunami, Malaysia faced a rude awakening by the 26 December 2004 Andaman tsunami. Since the event, Malaysia has started active research on someExpand
A simulation model for projecting changes in salinity concentrations and species dominance in the coastal margin habitats of the Everglades
Sharp boundaries typically separate the salinity tolerant mangroves from the salinity intolerant hardwood hammock species, which occupy the similar geographical areas of southern Florida. Evidence ofExpand
Competition between Hardwood Hammocks and Mangroves
A bstractThe boundaries between mangroves and freshwater hammocks in coastal ecotones of South Florida are sharp. Further, previous studies indicate that there is a discontinuity in plant predawnExpand
Analytical and numerical simulation of tsunami mitigation by mangroves in Penang, Malaysia
The Andaman tsunami that occurred on 26 December 2004 killed about a quarter million people worldwide, of which 52 deaths happened in Penang, Malaysia. Mangrove forests fringing the shallow coastalExpand
SIMULATION OF FUTURE ANDAMAN TSUNAMI INTO STRAITS OF MALACCA BY TUNA
The Andaman tsunami that occurred on 26 December 2004 has initiated and sustained keen research interest on modeling the characteristics and impacts of tsunami, with particular reference to tsunamiExpand
Conservation and restoration of mangroves: Global status, perspectives, and prognosis
Abstract Mangrove forests provide critical services around the globe to both human populations and the ecosystems they occupy. However, losses of mangrove habitat of more than 50% have been recordedExpand
Spatial pattern formation of coastal vegetation in response to external gradients and positive feedbacks affecting soil porewater salinity: a model study
Coastal vegetation of South Florida typically comprises salinity-tolerant mangroves bordering salinity-intolerant hardwood hammocks and fresh water marshes. Two primary ecological factors appear toExpand
Defining the next generation modeling of coastal ecotone dynamics in response to global change
Coastal ecosystems are especially vulnerable to global change; e.g., sea level rise (SLR) and extreme events. Over the past century, global change has resulted in salt-tolerant (halophytic) plantExpand
CLIMATE CHANGE AND SOIL SALINIZATION : IMPACT ON AGRICULTURE , WATER AND FOOD SECURITY
Global climate change (GCC) has the potential of causing sea level rise (SLR) and precipitation changes in vast extents of coastal areas. SLR and precipitation changes will have impact on soilExpand
Application of a Coupled Vegetation Competition and Groundwater Simulation Model to Study Effects of Sea Level Rise and Storm Surges on Coastal Vegetation
Global climate change poses challenges to areas such as low-lying coastal zones, where sea level rise (SLR) and storm-surge overwash events can have long-term effects on vegetation and on soil andExpand
