PhD : SUBMERSION OF A SANDY BARRIER - Submersion at various time and spatial scales from modelling

The nearshore water levels vary at different timescales from minutes to annuals and are governed by the astronomical tides, meteorological conditions, local bathymetry and a set of others local and remote factors. During storms, the water level has been observed to rise to several meters above its usual mean value, causing considerable damage to natural and artificial structures. Potential impacts of extreme water level events along the coasts are significantly increasing as mean sea levels and extreme meteorological events rise. To better understanding and predicting theirs impacts, it's required a greater understanding of conditions driving high water levels.

The context of Taiwan provides a large wide of meteo-marine factors with complex bathymetries, warm currents and extreme meteorological events. The aim of my thesis is to highlight the meteo-marine parameters leading the nearshore water elevation under extreme phenomena under at different time and spatial scales.

I am working on existing data and numerical modelling.
