Turbidity Currents geohazards offshore Mozambique – Phase 2
This project seeks to quantify the met-ocean conditions that lead to turbidity current triggering using 1.5D and 3D numerical models coupling near-shore circulation with deepwater turbidity flow models. The study area is subject to cyclones and monsoon storms that generate strong winds, waves and currents capable of triggering turbidity currents that could potentially impact the planned infrastructures in the area. The modelling work is part of the overall risk assessment in support of a large deepwater development offshore Mozambique. The results of the study are not yet public.
