New paper: Climate and human pressures can influence the evolution of estuarine sediment dynamics concurrently, but the understanding and quantification of their cause‐effect relationships are still challenging due to the occurrence of complex hydro‐morpho‐sedimentary feedbacks. The Garonne Tidal River (GTR, upper Gironde Estuary, France) is a clear example of a system stressed by both anthropogenic and climate change, as it has been subject to decreasing river discharges, natural morphological changes, and gravel extraction. To understand the relative effect of each hydrological and geomorphological pressure on the turbidity maximum zone (TMZ), the sediment dynamics in the GTR over the last six decades was evaluated using the width‐averaged idealized iFlow model.
To understand the hydrodynamics driven by river-tide interactions and sediment transport processes in estuarine environments, in particular in the context of climate change and human pressures.
To improve the understanding and modelling of the behaviour, transport processes, and fate of microplastics. A particular goal is to define the role of transitional waters as source and sink of marine plastic debris.
Transport processes along the continuum
To undestand the hydro-morphosedimentary feedbacks between neighbourg muddy coastal sytems and investigate the flux of sediments and microplastics through the estuary-coast-ocean continuum.
In-situ observations of physical parameters: currents, turbidity, salinity, temperature, water level, waves.
Descriptive, statistical, harmonic and spectral (e.g. SSA, WCT, EMD, LSP, CD) methods for the analysis of time series.
Idealized and numerical (Eularian and Lagrangian) models of flow and transport of sediment and particles.
