The wave reduction (wave period; 5–8 sec.) was investigated in amangrove reforestation area (Kandelia candel) close toaquaculture ponds in the Tong King delta, Vietnam.On one site where only young mangrove trees grew, the wavereduction due to the drag force on the trees was hardlyeffective. On the other site where mangrove trees weresufficiently tall, the rate of wave reduction per 100 m was aslarge as 20%. Due to the high density of vegetation distributedthroughout the whole water depth, the… 
Wave reduction in a mangrove forest dominated by Sonneratia sp.
Based on a field observation at the Vinh Quang coast in northern Vietnam, the characteristics of wave reduction due to the drag force of one mangrove species, Sonneratia sp., were quantitatively
Coastal erosion due to long-term human impact on mangrove forests
A coast in southern Vietnam, which is located in a wide and flat alluvial fan and neighbors tidal rivers fringed by wide mangrove swamps, has been eroded continuously by approximately 50 m/year since
Effect of mangrove forest structures on wave attenuation in coastal Vietnam
Abstract This paper analyses wave attenuation in coastal mangrove forests in Vietnam. Data from 32 mangrove plots of six species located in 2 coastal regions are used for this study. In each plot,

SUMMARY This paper analyzes wave attenuation in coastal mangrove forests in Vietnam. Data from 32 mangrove plots of six species located in 2 coastal regions are used for this study. In each plot,
EXPERIMENTS ON HYDRODYNAMIC CHARACTERISTICS AT DONG TRANH ESTUARY, CAN GIO MANGROVE FOREST, SOUTHERN VIETNAM
Mangroves are a unique form of vegetation that exist at the boundary of two distinct environments. Mangrove forest plays a special role in supporting fisheries, in stabilizing tropical coastal zones,
The solutions for construction of sea dike and sea embankments system as the sandy mud trap to support mangrove plants in the coastal zone of Hai Phong city, Vietnam
Mangrove plants play a viral role in protecting the coast, retraining erosion. Especially in areas considered the variable wave conditions, complex dynamic conditions such as the coastal region of

Wave Attenuation Over Mangroves in the Nanliu Delta, China
Mangrove forests grow on tropical and subtropical coastlines and play a significant role in reducing hydrodynamic energy. However, little information is known about the mechanism of wave attenuation

Sedimentation in Mangrove Forests
The tidal currents in mangrove forests are impeded by the friction caused by the high vegetation density. The tidal currents are also complex comprising eddies, jets and stagnation zones. The
