2022.2.2 Research article published in Earth Surface Processes and Landforms

The following paper by Dr. Kimhuy et al., a doctoral student in the Joint Education Program of AUN/SEED-Net, has been published in an international journal of Earth Surface Processes and Landforms. The paper discusses the mechanism of shoreline change over the past 70 years from the Chao Phraya River to the Bang Pakong River in the upper Gulf of Thailand, based on aerial photographs and other data. It is noteworthy that the installation of bamboo fences on the southeast coast of the Bang Pakong River, where natural mangroves extended due to the abundant sediment supply, may not contribute to the regeneration of mangroves because the bamboo fences interfere with alongshore […]
