Abstract:This paper describes the development of a model for prediction of local changes in morphodynamics resulting from managed realignment, undertaken as part of the UK project funded by the Defra project, FD2107. The methodology builds on the conceptual modelling approach to habitat development employed successfully by Di Silvio (1989, 1990) and others for lagoon environments. The overall approach can be described as hybrid – combining bottom-up (process-based) and top-down (simplified and/or empirical) predictive techniques – to describe the essential inlet functioning.
