Data: Professor Holmes interests include :
wave dynamics, coastal processes, wave loading, coast protection
structures, remote sensing in coastal processes., man-made and natural
lagoon dynamics - tidal, river and wave influences on sedimentation
and water quality. Professor Holmes has visited abroad to
lecture, present papers and consulting in Greece, Kuwait, Egypt,
India, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Australia, People's Republic
of China and the U.S.A.
Research topics studied by Ph.D.
students supervised: Wave statistics, extreme wave
prediction wave loading on offshore platform, single-layer armour
unit performance, wave-induced nearshore circulation and sediment
transport tidal lagoon processes.- involving numerical modelling
and laboratory experiments.
