  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - Real-time marine observing systems: Challenges,
           benefits and opportunities in Australian coastal waters
    • Abstract: Rigby, P; Steinberg, CR; Williams, DK; Brinkman, G; Brinkman, R; Tonin, H; Hughes, D
      The Australian Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) is funded by the Australian Government, and designed to be a fully-integrated national array of observing equipment to monitor the open oceans and coastal marine environment around Australia. IMOS delivers physical, chemical and biological data comprising of observations from a wide spectrum of platforms including weather stations, oceanographic moorings, underway ship observations, seagliders, ocean surface radar, satellite image reception and reef based sensor networks. When data from ocean observing systems can be provided in near real-time, the operational aspects are further enhanced and provide potential for a range of value added products to be developed. Here we provide three examples of co-invested partnerships that have facilitated the development of real-time moored ocean observing systems in the coastal zone, operated by the Queensland IMOS node. For each of these examples, the project is introduced, a detailed technical description of the system is provided, operational aspects are summarised, and the uptake of data from stakeholders is discussed. These examples demonstrate the benefits of having a national collaborative approach to marine observing with a clear focus on open access to data. It is also demonstrated that the benefits and opportunities offered by real-time ocean observing can outweigh the technical challenges of developing and maintaining these complex systems.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - Nearshore SWAN model sensitivities to measured and
           modelled offshore wave scenarios at an embayed beach compartment, NSW,
           Australia
    • Abstract: Mortlock, TR; Goodwin, ID; Turner, IL
      Spectral wave modelling is a common dynamical approach to transform offshore wave climates to the nearshore zone for coastal hazard definition and engineering design. Knowledge of model limitations and sensitivities are thus of paramount importance to appropriate use for coastal engineering. This study reports the calibration and nearshore sensitivities of a SWAN model at Wamberal-Terrigal on the central New South Wales coast, when the model is forced with wave information from a regional WaveWatch III (WW-III) model, compared to model forcing from simultaneous offshore buoy observations. SWAN achieved good results for nearshore wave heights (R2 = 0.86, RMSE = 0.2 m), but under-estimated mean wave period by approximately 1 s. Default SWAN physics were found to be largely appropriate. The inclusion of hindcast winds introduced a systematic over-estimation of high frequency (low period) wind-sea but improved the shape of the wave period distribution. Transformations of WW-III spectra through SWAN suggests that oblique swell is under-represented by WW-III at this location, with only wave directions between 80 degrees and 150 degrees accounted for. In modelling cases, the long shore transport component, typically driven by oblique long-period wave energy, would likely be under-estimated while shorter-period wind-waves that favour cross-shore sediment transport is preferenced.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - Entrance changes in the Snowy River estuary in
           response to environmental flow releases
    • Abstract: Hinwood, JB; McLean, EJ
      Environmental flow releases (EFR) to the Snowy River were made in November 2010 and October 2011. For each release, the effects on the inlet entrance morphology and tidal response were measured on four field trips to cover the flow peak and recovery. Water level recorders were deployed in the principal channels over the period of the release and, for the 2011 release, for the prior two months and year following at Marlo. Each EFR raised water levels in the estuary but the changes were attenuated by the large storage capacity and the relatively open entrance of the estuary. Entrance scour was minor and occurred primarily in the intertidal zone, showing that the entrance was close to equilibrium for the EFR. This result was confirmed by analyses of the sediment transport capacity and through use of an attractor plot of the entrance dynamics. A measure of entrance changes before and after the 2011 surveys was provided by the use of a moving-window analysis of the tidal record and confirmed the value of this method. Instantaneous values of entrance scour and deposition were predominantly tidally driven but river fl ow biased the net scour/deposition, leading to scour on the rising and peak stages of the EFR and rapid deposition late in the falling stages. The role of tidal asymmetry was shown to be significant. The attractor map, which showed the evolution of the depth as the river flow varied, provided a useful tool for interpretation and prediction of probable changes.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - High frequency radar applications in coastal
           monitoring, planning and engineering
    • Abstract: Wyatt, LR
      This paper reviews some existing and potential applications of high frequency (HF) radar surface current, wave and wind data drawing on experiences within Australia and also from elsewhere in the world. These include oil spill transport, search and rescue services, navigational safety, marine renewables, tsunami detection, water quality and coastal development projects, and many different applications in the area of marine ecology. The data are also used for studies of ocean dynamics and for the validation of hydrodynamic and wave models. Some new wind direction and wave measurements from the Australian radar systems are presented. The quality of the data is crucial to all these applications and some examples of data validation are discussed. Learning from the experiences of other more developed networks, and in particular building solid links with the user communities in Australia, is essential to ensure long-term sustainability of the Australian HF radar network.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - Rapid assessment of boat-generated waves within
           sheltered waterways
    • Abstract: Macfarlane, GJ; Duffy, JT; Bose, N
      It is well known that waves generated by passing ships and boats can cause problems for other users of a waterway and the surrounding environment. In recent decades there has been a growing need to quantify these waves so that fair and realistic regulations can be implemented to ensure vessel operations cause minimal or negligible harm. The majority of regulatory criteria adopted both locally and internationally have relied upon the identification and quantification of just a single characteristic wave from the entire train of waves generated by a vessel, usually the highest. However, it has been shown that this is generally inadequate when considering the more complex wave patterns that are generated when craft operate in shallow water environments. This paper reports on a recent study that defined three key waves that should be quantified when assessing vessel wave wake in shallow water conditions to account for all potentially dangerous or damaging waves, particularly those of low height and high energy. Also outlined is the development of a tool that can rapidly and accurately predict the characteristics of the three key waves. This tool was developed using data acquired from a comprehensive set of model scale experiments and has been validated against measured data from independent full scale trials. The tool can be used to account for the effect that water depth, hull form and vessel speed has on the waves generated. The Wave Wake Predictor is now freely available online to assist those tasked with designing new vessels, or those who wish to identify any potentially serious wave wake issues very early in the planning and design stages of any vessel for a particular route.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - Influence of restricted water on the time domain
           interaction forces and moment on a berthed ship due to a passing ship
    • Abstract: Denehy, SP; Duffy, JT; Ranmuthugala, D; Renilson, MR
      An investigation was conducted into the effect that different berthed ship bow and stern blockage arrangements has on the interaction forces and moment experienced by a berthed ship due to a passing ship. Physical scale model experiments were used to quantify the magnitude and form of the interaction forces and moments for five different blockage arrangements. The interaction force and moment traces from the experiments were compared to traces predicted using existing empirical formulae based on open water scenarios. Additionally, two methods were used to adjust idealised curves using the experimental results to better represent the form and magnitude of the interaction forces and moments. To demonstrate the effect that the changes in form and magnitude of the interaction forces and moments has on the predicted berthed ship motions the interaction forces and moment from the physical scale model experiments, empirical predictions and the adjusted idealised curves were extrapolated to represent a full scale ship and used as input to a commercially available time domain numerical simulation code to predict the berthed ship motions. The bow and stern blockage was shown to have a significant effect on both the form and magnitude of the interaction forces and moments, and hence, the predicted berthed ship motions. The empirically predicted interaction forces and moments correlated poorly with the experimental results.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - Case study: Assessment of the entrance stability of
           the Lake Illawarra Estuary
    • Abstract: Young, S; Couriel, E; Jayewardene, I; McPherson, B; Dooley, B
      Prior to completion of entrance improvements in 2007, Lake Illawarra behaved as an ICOLL (intermittently closed and open lakes and lagoons) with entrance conditions dependent on prevailing conditions. Since construction of twin training breakwaters and dredging in 2007, the entrance has remained permanently open, with water level stations within the estuary recording an increasing tidal signal. This paper provides a case study describing methods to assess the stability of the entrance to Lake Illawarra through preliminary analysis of aerial photography, hydro-survey, continuous water level records, consecutive tidal gauging and Escoffier analysis. Regarding the case study of entrance stability, consideration is given to data for analysis, limitations of the analysis and its reliance on local or site specific empirical data, needs for ongoing monitoring and tuning to represent further data, potential implications for Lake Illawarra and on similar estuaries and possible management responses. The likely effects of expected sea level rise on stability of the entrance are also estimated based on the understood key physical processes. Since completion of the entrance works, the lake is characterised by an 'unstable scouring' entrance as indicated by empirical analysis supported by lake water level and catchment rainfall data, tidal fl ow gauging, hydro-surveys and aerial photography. Ongoing monitoring and evaluation will determine further action that may be required.
