Headland wake flows and the effects of an upstream disturbance

O'Byrne, Melanie Jane


This thesis presents laboratory experiments examining the dynamics of headland wakes with and without an incident disturbance in the oncoming flow. In particular, we explore the effects on the headland wake structure of the wake of another obstacle located upstream of the headland, and the extent to which incident variability influences wake shape and structure. Flow around islands, headlands and reefs is known to bring up nutrients from deeper waters, influence the distribution of sediments...[Show more]
