IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Modelling of the wave-current interaction in the pearl river estuary
Author : Chong Hao WANG, Onyx Wing Hong WAI and Yok Sheung LI
A wave propagation model based on the wave action conservation theory was developed and applied to the modelling of wave characteristics and the interaction of wave and current in the Pearl River Estuary, by coupling with a three-dimensional hydrodynamic model. The modelling results show that waves propagating from the open sea would be attenuated significantly because of sheltering by islands and
shoaling. Waves incoming from the south can propagate further upstream. The tidal current generally increases the wave heights and the effect of the ebbing flow on waves is significant.
