He was awarded a PU Vice Chancellor’s Research Fellowship in 2007, and he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society in 2004. He contributed submissions to both the RAE and REF at PU.

    Andy is also a Principal Scientist in the Coasts & Estuaries Group at HR Wallingford Ltd (HRW). He has 12 years experience at HR Wallingford where he specialises in sediment transport and cohesive sediment flocculation processes. Andrew has developed the highly successful LabSFLOC-1 and LabSFLOC-2 high resolution underwater video floc camera systems. Regarded as a benchmark device for floc population sampling, LabSFLOC permit the simultaneous measurements of floc sizes and settling velocities for entire floc populations within a wide range of aquatic environments.

    Andy has 18 years of experience examining sediment transport process using both: i) the controlled environment of laboratory simulations (including annular flumes), and ii) conducting in-situ sediment transport field work campaigns (many dredging orientated) in a wide range of coastal, inner shelf, estuarial, deltas, lakes and other inland waterways, both within the UK and internationally. Andy’s field work locations include: San Francisco Bay system (USA), the Sacramento–San Joaquin River Delta (i.e. thenorthern Californian delta, USA), Seine /Loire-St.Nazaire / Gironde Estuaries (France), Tamar / Severn / Dee / Orwell / Humber / Portsmouth / Thames Estuaries (UK), Port of Zeebrugge /Port of Antwerp (Belgium), and Lake Apopka /Lake Tahoe (USA).

    Andy has been successful in securing over £1.44M (£2.69M combined grant total) in research funding since 2002. Since 2002 Andy has been Project Manager & Principal Investigator on 23 research and consultancy projects, and Co-investigator on a further 16 projects at HRW and PU. In 2013 Andy was appointed a Visiting Professor specialising in Sediment Dynamical Processes at the University of Hull.

    Andy has contributed to over 86 peer reviewed scientific articles, of which 35 have been published in international scientific journals. This includes editing two books on sediment transport (Intech, Vienna; 2011 and 2013). He is an Associate Editor for the Springer journal ‘Ocean Dynamics’ for the INTERCOH-2011 special Issue. Andy was invited to join the Editorial Board of the Elsevier journal ‘Estuarine Coastal Shelf Science’ in 2012.

      Acoustic Backscatter Cohesive Sediment Research (2012 - ongoing) DDY0460

      This research project concerns the use of acoustics to derive concentration estimates for flocculating sediment suspensions. Project objectives include:   • Development of a “best practice” approach to the acquisition and processing of data from moored ADCP’s • Field sampling campaigns will be undertaken using a dual frequency ADCP approach to address the problem of constrainingacoustic backscatter inversion. Floc property data will also be collected. This will build a data base of samples for derivation of a series of semi-empirical algorithms that can be used to calibrate both ADCP signals in terms of the relationship between acoustic backscatter intensity and flocculating suspended matter. The question of the effect of sample numbers on the calibration of the ADCP will be investigated. An active collaborative project link has been established between Prof. Dan Parsons (University of Hull) and Andy’s team at HR Wallingford. A press release outlining the project can be found at the following internet location: http://www.hrwallingford.com/BlogRetrieve.aspxPostID=328317&A=SearchResult&SearchID=924477&ObjectID=328317&ObjectType=55. Andy is the Project Manager and Principal Investigator at HR Wallingford.

      Since 2008, Andrew has participated every year in research cruises and campaigns in the San Francisco Bay system with the US Geological Survey’s Sacramento Office team lead by Prof. David Schoellhamer. Andrew developed a co-operative agreement in 2011 with the US Geological Survey to assess cohesive and mixed sediment transport processes in San Francisco Bay and the Sacramento–San Joaquin River Delta (i.e. the northern Californian delta). The project is funded by the US Department of Reclamation and US Dept. of the Interior.

      SiTE – Sediment in Transitional Environments (2010 - ongoing) DDY0427 The SiTE project is an investigation of cohesive sediment dynamics in aquatic environments (fresh and saline, fluvial and marine). The project evaluates sediment dynamics in these transitional environments where fine cohesive particles have a much greater propensity to adsorb contaminants and nutrients than coarse granular particles. This in turn has a direct effect on water quality and related environmental issues and the way in which assessments and numerical modelling are carried out. The SiTE project is structured into three phases. Phase 1: process and analyse existing raw data from a wide range of aquatic environments; and Phase 2: collect, process and analyse new data from both freshwater, brackish and marine environments (as collaborative opportunities); and Phase 3: synthesis and modelling parameterization, plus testing. Andrew is the Project Manager and Principal Investigatorat HR Wallingford. FLUMES project, France (2010 - ongoing)

      Andrew has participated in three spatial in-situ measurement campaigns of hydrodynamics and cohesive sedimentation in the Seine Estuary, France for numerical modelling calibration, process observation and instrument inter-calibration. Collaboration was with Ifremer (France) and Uni. S. Carolina (USA).Ifremer chartered the CNRS vessel ‘Cote de La Manche’ for the FLUMES2 fieldwork. Andrew is the Principal Investigator at HR Wallingford.

      Cohesive sediment settling flux (2009-2012) DDY0409

      In this project new physics-based formulations for the settling velocity (Ws) and mass settling flux for flocculated estuarine mud. Ws of microflocs and macroflocs were related to floc size (D) and density via the Kolmogorov microscale as a function of turbulent shear-stress and sediment concentration, including height-dependence and floc-density-dependence. Formulae coefficients were calibrated against data from three estuaries. The formulae achieve a good level of agreement with data compared with other published prediction methods. Andrew was Project Manager and Principal Investigator at HR Wallingford.
