Abstract

Tidal inlets are located between open seas and coastal lagoons. They experience complex hydrodynamic patterns owning to the actions of ocean waves and tidal currents - the two main drivers of various coastal processes including sediment transport, shoreline evolution, erosion, inundation and extreme sea levels. Better decision-making, sustainable management and adaptation requires numerical models to predict coastal hydrodynamics to gain a better understanding of how these mechanisms behave and change over time. Especially nowadays, human-induced pressures have been increasingly causing significant disruption to the formerly pristine state of these important coastal systems. However, our exi..
