This thesis investigated the seasonal and inter-annual sea level along the Vietnam coast and storm surge dynamics along the Australian North West Shelf. The reversing monsoon system, El Niño Southern Oscillation and nodal tides were the major mechanisms influencing longer-term sea level variability along the Vietnam coast. Along the North West Shelf, tropical cyclones making landfall generated a combination of a forerunner, edge waves and continental shelf waves that persisted for up to tendays. Continental shelf waves interacting with Barrow Island resulted in higher upstream sea levels and strong currents due to the topographic barrier.
