  4. 4. Sediment transport and bathymetric change at Hornafjörður tidal inlet - Field data analysis and mathematical modeling

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Author : Clemens Klante; [2018]
    Keywords : Coastal Inlet; Hornafjörður; Morphology; TELEMAC; ebb shoal; mathematical modeling; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Commercial fishing makes the coastal inlet in Hornafjörður to an important navigational link for the port of Höfn in southeast Iceland. Low water depth caused through sediment accumulation along the ebb shoal generates navigational problems and the phenomenon of glacial rebound seems to intensify this problem. READ MORE
