The project is organised into six work packages, which focus on the key areas of potential Wave Hub impact. Select from the list below for details of each package.


Announcements:

Sep 2009:
The summer season is drawing to a close. 3D morphology has not been as extensively developed as during 2008, but bar/rip morphology has still dominated from Perranporth to Porth Towan.

Jan 2009:
The first year of beach monitoring has been completed! A sustained period of long period swell waves have caused the beaches to become two-dimensional and highly planar - typical winter profiles.

Aug 2008:
Dr Martin Austin and Tim Scott have just completed a 10-day field experiment at Perranporth monitoring the occurrence and dynamics of macrotidal rip current circulation.
