Rainfall-runoff properties of tephra: simulated effects of grain-size and antecedent rainfall (2017)
Journal Article
Jones, R., Thomas, R. E., Peakall, J., & Manville, V. (2017). Rainfall-runoff properties of tephra: simulated effects of grain-size and antecedent rainfall. Geomorphology, 282, 39-51. doi:10.1016/j.geomorph.2016.12.023

Rain-triggered lahars (RTLs) are a significant and often persistent secondary volcanic hazard at many volcanoes around the world. Rainfall on unconsolidated volcaniclastic material is the primary initiation mechanism of RTLs: the resultant flows have... Read More

Modeling of multilayer cohesive bank erosion with a coupled bank stability and mobile-bed model (2014)
Journal Article
Lai, Y. G., Thomas, R. E., Ozeren, Y., Simon, A., Greimann, B. P., & Wu, K. (2015). Modeling of multilayer cohesive bank erosion with a coupled bank stability and mobile-bed model. Geomorphology, 243, 116-129. doi:10.1016/j.geomorph.2014.07.017

Streambank erosion can be an important form of channel change in unstable alluvial environments. It should be accounted for in geomorphic studies, river restoration, dam removal, and channel maintenance projects. Recently, one-dimensional and two-dim... Read More

Geometrical and mechanical properties of four species of northern European brown macroalgae (2013)
Journal Article
Paul, M., Henry, P. Y. T., & Thomas, R. E. (2014). Geometrical and mechanical properties of four species of northern European brown macroalgae. Coastal Engineering, 84, 73-80. doi:10.1016/j.coastaleng.2013.11.007

Aquatic vegetation interacts with the flow by posing an obstruction and in return experiences drag and is reconfigured by acting forces. It is suggested that plant buoyancy and stiffness affect these bio-physical interactions and hence should be cons... Read More
