The Migration Period, Southern Denmark and the North Sea. A workbook in relation to the Gredstedbro find: A student project at the University of Southern Denmark maritime archaeology Programme. Peter Friend highlights the many famous and much loved natural landscapes of the southern half of England, ranging from the Chalk Downs to the bays of Cornwall, Devon, and Dorset, and provides detailed explanations for the wide variety of natural events and processes that have caused such an exciting range of surroundings.

The North Sea is a marginal sea of the Atlantic Ocean located between Great Britain (England and Scotland), Denmark, Norway, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and epeiric (or "shelf") sea on the European continental shelf, it connects to the ocean through the English Channel in the south and the Norwegian Sea in the north.

Tidal stage has a significant impact on the inshore wave climate, varying wave heights by up to m and increasing tenfold the magnitude of the longshore sediment transport.

Thornhill, Robert J. Nicholls. The wave simulations above are made assuming a fixed bed. Changes in wave climate and sea level potentially modify the sediment dynamics and the supply of sediment for the maintenance of offshore sandbanks.

Here, the evolution of the sandbanks is analysed by simulating sediment transport and seabed morphodynamics using a process-based by: 2. Effect of tidal currents on sediment pathways around the shore-parallel breakwaters at Sea Palling, England Bacon, JC., Vincent, CE., Pan, SQ.

& O'Connor, B.,Proceedings of the International Conference on Coastal Sediments Corpus Christi, Texas, USA: World Scientific Publishing Corp. and East Meets West Productions. The North Sea is bounded by the Orkney Islands and east coast of Great Britain to the west [1] and the northern and central European mainland to the east and south, including Norway, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, and France.

[2] In the southwest, beyond the Straits of Dover, the North Sea becomes the English Channel connecting to the Atlantic Ocean. A multiple grid spectral wave refraction model has been constructed for the whole of the east coast offshore area.

This was used to^determine the nearshore wave climate at 38 points along the coast, spaced at approximately 10km intervals. The eastern and western coasts of the North Sea are jagged, formed by glaciers during the ice coastlines along the southernmost part are covered with the remains of deposited glacial sediment.

The Norwegian mountains plunge into the sea creating deep fjords and of Stavanger, the coast softens, the islands become fewer. The eastern Scottish coast is similar, though.

The general direction of sediment transport is southward with offshore sediment transport at Lowestoft and Kessingland, in the north, and at Dunwich and Thorpeness, in the south (McCave,Clayton et al., ). Fluctuations in wind and wave fields generate considerable variation in sediment transport Cited by: This paper presents an analysis of the spatial characteristics and duration of extreme wave events around the English coast.

There are five geographic regions which are affected as coherent units under extreme wave conditions, incorporating a sixth micro-wave climate region (western Lyme Bay). Characteristic storm tracks are associated with each region.

Storms affecting the East region (North Cited by: 4. One is an absence of gradients in the longshore transport of sediment and the other is that the seaward depth of profile closure prevents sediment exchange between the lower and the upper parts of the shoreface.

The barrier spit of Skallingen on the Danish North Sea coast is strongly eroding. Happisburgh is located on the soft sediment coast of Norfolk, eastern England. The length of the coast that is simulated is ca. 3 km.

The site is exposed to southern North Sea waves, with average annual significant wave heights (Hs) of m and peak periods (Tp) of 4 s from the N-NNE. World Scientific Publishing Corp. and East Meets West Productions, Corpus Christi, Texas, USA.

Whitehouse, Richard J. S., Rees, Jon M., Guthrie, Greg, D'Olier, Brian and Vincent, Chris () Improved understanding of sediment transport for coastal management on the east coast of England. The Great Yarmouth zone is subjected to the fetch-limited storm wave climate of the Southern North Sea.

According to Pye and Blott () most waves in this area approach from the north and northeast or south and southeast; ∼40% of all the waves are less than 1 m high and 76% of all waves less than 2 m high; the largest waves approach from Cited by: The North Sea would shrink in size, and Norfolk’s coast would move northwards and eastwards.

Norfolk would increase in size. But in contrast, a 30 m global sea level rise during a warm episode, when glaciers melt into the seas, would cause the coastline in Norfolk to move westwards, swallowing up the present day coastal areas.
