    Abstract

    An investigation into the effectiveness of a prototype hydro-geological hazard mitigation project was carried out in this research. Numerical models were generated to determine the effectiveness of the project using the GeoStudio2012 suite of products. The output data from numerical models created in SEEP/W, SIGMA/W and SLOPE/W have been used to predict the design capability of this novel hydro-geological hazard mitigation project.
    This research project is intended as a template for further study geared at developing regional scale solutions to flooding and soil erosion in marine settings. It is the hoped that the information obtained from the numerical analysis this hydro-geological hazard mitigation project will be implemented in the modification of existing hazard maps created by various authors for selected sites on the island.
