Research interests

Much of my career has focused on environmental fluid mechanics. In the 1980s, my research group investigated wave loading on flexibly mounted cylinders and floating offshore structures. From the 1990s onwards, my group studied nearshore currents at beaches, ocean dispersion of oil slicks, the inshore propagation of extreme storm-induced waves, and wave run-up and overtopping of coastal defences. Our methods for modelling free surface flows have been applied worldwide to floods (China, Mexico), water quality (Brazil, Morocco), wave-induced currents (Spain, Mexico), lake mixing (Hungary), fish passes (Japan), sea defences (UK), and offshore structures on the continental shelf (UK, USA). For more than 30 years, I have collaborated with colleagues in Hungary on the hydrodynamics of rivers and lakes, and in China on environmental engineering, in particular long-term human and climate change effects on the Yellow and Yangtze Rivers. An important focus has been on the impacts of cascades of dams constructed along large rivers. Our work on biological and nano-technological methods for treating polluted wastewater effluent in China helped lead to the £30M Singapore-Peking-Oxford Research Enterprise. In recent years, my work has also encompassed marine renewable energy, in particular tidal stream power assessment and ocean wave statistics at offshore wind turbine sites.

My research has four main themes, each aimed towards an improved understanding of environmental flows.

       The first theme is shallow environmental flow processes. In collaboration with Hungarian colleagues, my research group developed models of flows in rivers, lakes, estuaries and coastal zones, which are used to simulate urban floods, reservoir flows, near-shore currents, debris flows, and internal density waves. Applications include wind-induced circulation in Lake Balaton (Hungary) and Nichupté Lagoon (Mexico), flood inundation of Thamesmead (London), water quality assessments for Sepetiba Bay (Brazil) and Nador Lagoon (Morocco), hurricane surge inundation of the coastlines of Tamaulipas and Quintana Roo States (Mexico), storm surge flooding of Walcott (UK), and suspended sediment motions in a mine tailings pond (Canada). In collaboration with colleagues at Manchester University, my group has also investigated the evolution of marine sandbanks in tidal flows. From 2010 onwards, with colleagues at Oxford and the University of Western Australia, I have studied the interaction between tidal power devices and their environment. We predicted that the tidal stream power available from the Pentland Firth might be capped at about 2 GW, 

       The second theme is coastal processes. From the 1990s onwards, my research group has investigated wave-induced nearshore currents, the dispersion of oil slicks in the ocean, the interaction of extreme storm-induced wave with beaches, and wave run-up and overtopping of coastal defences. A coastal flow solver, developed jointly with a collaborator from Mexico, has been applied to port design, harbour resonance, and wave climate problems at beaches in Spain and Mexico.

       The third theme is ocean waves and their loading on maritime structures. In the 1980s, my research group developed mathematical models of the loading and response of cylinders in ocean waves, in particular the resonant responses of the cylinder to waves and vortices (relevant to the design of marine risers). I measured pressure distributions on cylinders in unsteady flows, useful for assessing the buckling sensitivity of the columns of floating offshore platforms. This methodology was used in the design of the Conoco Hutton Tension Leg Platform, the first such floating oil and gas platform to be installed in the North Sea. My group also investigated wave diffraction by arrays of vertical cylinders, using theoretical and experimental methods. My researchers have simulated unidirectional, oscillatory, orbital, and focused wave flows past a cylinder, the latter supplemented by laboratory experiments at Cornell University. In collaboration with scholars at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, I have investigated the statistics of irregular waves passing over the continental shelf, and steady state harmonic resonances of free surface and internal waves.

     The fourth theme is environmental science and engineering – a subject of immense importance in modern China. Since my first visit to China in 1990, I have collaborated with environmental engineering colleagues at Peking University, Wuhan University, Beijing Normal University, China University of Geosciences (Beijing) and Tsinghua University on water science and engineering. In 1998-9, Professor Jinren Ni of Peking University spent a year working in my research group in Oxford. Since then, I made more than 25 visits to PKU, initially contributing to joint research on kinetic theory for fluvial sediment transport, coastline reclamation of the Pearl River, and low flows and dyke breaches in the lower Yellow River. Over the years, I worked with scholars in China on water-sediment science, sustainable management of river basins, hazard zonation, all-material fluxes in large rivers, and water and wastewater treatment. Our research has led to more than 70 co-authored journal papers on environmental topics including global golden inland waterways, carbon and solute flux exchanges in the world’s large river basins, global trends in water and sediment variations of large rivers, sediment-laden floods in the lower Yellow River, long-term human and climate change effects on the Yellow River, sorption of contaminants on Yellow River sediment, spatial distributions of diatoms and chemical substances along the Yangtze River, hazard zonation (mapping debris flows, landslides, rock falls, soil erosion, and flood hazards throughout China), wind-blown sand transport, and the optimized operation of oxidation ditches. I have collaborated with colleagues at Wuhan University on advanced techniques for modelling debris flows and landslide-induced barrier lakes. Our research has contributed to improved biological and nano-technological methods for treating polluted wastewater effluent from coking, petroleum, leather tanning, and palm oil industries in China. We have worked on enhanced methods for the removal from water of heavy metals, phenols, ammonia, nitrates, sulphides, and natural organic matter. Recently, we helped resolve the mystery of vanishing rivers in China. In 2010, our long-term collaboration led to the Singapore-Peking-Oxford Research Enterprise (SPORE) for Water Eco-efficiency (2010-15), funded by a grant of 400 million RMB from the Singapore Education and Development Board. SPORE provided advanced technological solutions for drinking water, wastewater treatment, urban solid-waste management, water quality of waterways, and river rehabilitation. The research collaboration has also helped raise awareness in China of the societal and environmental impacts caused by the construction of cascades of dams along its major rivers.
