PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

As part of the development of the proposed Puhoi to Warkworth Highway of National Significance, numerical modelling of the sediment dispersion and deposition in the Mahurangi and Puhoi Estuaries was undertaken. The calibration of numerical models of Mahurangi and Puhoi Estuaries required the deployment of instruments measuring waves, currents, sea level, turbidity, temperature and salinity; and the collection of water and sediment samples.
