Establishing sustainable sediment budgets is critical for climate-resilient mega-deltas (2021)
Journal Article
Vasilopoulos, G., Quan, Q. L., Parsons, D. R., Darby, S. E., Tri, V. P. D., Hung, N. N., …Aalto, R. (2021). Establishing sustainable sediment budgets is critical for climate-resilient mega-deltas. Environmental Research Letters, 16(6), https://doi.org/10.1088/1748-9326/ac06fc

Many of the world's major river deltas face a sustainability crisis, as they come under threat of increases in salinity and the extent of tidal zones forced by combinations of sea-level rise, changes in river discharge and channel geometry. The relat... Read More about Establishing sustainable sediment budgets is critical for climate-resilient mega-deltas.

“A most excellent medicine”: Malaria, Mithridate, and the death of Andrew Marvell (2021)
Journal Article
Mottram, S. (in press). “A most excellent medicine”: Malaria, Mithridate, and the death of Andrew Marvell. Seventeenth Century, 1-27. https://doi.org/10.1080/0268117x.2021.1901240

The poet Andrew Marvell (1621-78) died suffering from vivax malaria, a common disease in the seventeenth century, endemic in estuary regions of eastern England. This article explores Marvell’s death alongside the literature and history of malaria and... Read More about “A most excellent medicine”: Malaria, Mithridate, and the death of Andrew Marvell.

Uncertainty in parameterising floodplain forest friction for Natural Flood Management, using remote sensing (2020)
Journal Article
Antonarakis, A., & Milan, D. (2020). Uncertainty in parameterising floodplain forest friction for Natural Flood Management, using remote sensing. Remote Sensing, 12(11), https://doi.org/10.3390/rs12111799

One potential Natural Flood Management option is floodplain reforestation or manage existing riparian forests, with a view to increasing flow resistance and attenuate flood hydrographs. However, the effectiveness of floodplain forests as resistance a... Read More about Uncertainty in parameterising floodplain forest friction for Natural Flood Management, using remote sensing.

Individual-based model of juvenile eel movement parametrized with computational fluid dynamics-derived flow fields informs improved fish pass design (2020)
Journal Article
Padgett, T. E., Borman, D. J., Mould, D. C., Padgett, T., Thomas, R. E., Borman, D., & Mould, D. (2020). Individual-based model of juvenile eel movement parametrized with computational fluid dynamics-derived flow fields informs improved fish pass design. Royal Society Open Science, 7(1), https://doi.org/10.1098/rsos.191505

European eel populations have declined markedly in recent decades, caused in part by in-stream barriers, such as weirs and pumping stations, which disrupt the upstream migration of juvenile eels, or elvers, into rivers. Eel passes, narrow sloping cha...

River bank instability from unsustainable sand mining in the lower Mekong River (2020)
Journal Article
Houseago, R. C., Nicholas, A. P., Best, J. L., Darby, S. E., Hackney, C. R., Darby, S., …Houseago, R. (2020). River bank instability from unsustainable sand mining in the lower Mekong River. Nature Sustainability, 3(3), 217-225. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41893-019-0455-3

Recent growth of the construction industry has fuelled demand for sand, with considerable volumes being extracted from the world’s large rivers. Sediment transport from upstream naturally replenishes sediment stored in river beds, but the absence of...
