Innovative Use of a Groin Structure: Saving Cost, Shortening the Schedule, and Minimizing Impacts
Almost any type of construction activity can pose a shock to the surrounding environment and habitat. Obviously, the extent of the impact will depend on the location of the project and...

Application of Multibeam Echo Sounding and Side Scan Sonar for Mapping of Shoreline Protection Revetments
The use of multibeam survey methodology coupled with high precision positioning systems for the mapping of shoreline protection features and the adjacent offshore areas allows development...

Characteristics and Implications of Relict Carbonate Paleoshorelines
Throughout the Florida-Bahamas region, the accumulation of coastal carbonate deposits, excepting the present highstand, appears to be episodic. Back through time these deposits provide...

Sedimental Journey
A numerical shoreline evolution model was used to examine the shoreline changes associated with the release of 2.3 million m³ of beach-quality sediment from behind Matilija Dam in Ventura...

Shoring Up Coastal Engineering
Half of Americans live within 50 mi (80 km) of the coast, although it is becoming increasingly risky and expensive to do so. The importance of ports to the global economy coincides with...

Monotonicity Preserving Model for Free-Surface Flow with Sharp Density Fronts

The Economics of Beach Nourishment in Delaware
This study provides a detailed examination of the benefits of Delaware's ongoing nourishment program, and examines the incidence of benefits to those who live within and outside of the...

Growing the Beaches: Restoring the Ventura Coast
The Surfrider Foundation has served as a catalyst for current efforts to restore eroded beaches in Ventura, California through a managed retreat from the shoreline and through watershed...

Monitoring and Performance Analysis of Protection Works at Rosslare Strand
Post construction monitoring and performance analysis has become an important part of many major coastal protection projects. In the past such work was carried out very much on an ad-hoc...

Regional Shoreline Group Session
California's beaches have suffered over the past decade. However to date, very little has been done to address the problem. The Sand Rights 99 conference serves as the venue for addressing...

Resolving Beach Conflicts in California and Maine
Local communities can measure and project sea level rise (SLR), delimit populations affected by SLR, assess the positions of local stakeholders, and put in place appropriate responses....

Damn Sand Rights: Removing Rindge and Matilija Dams
Two dams built in the 1920's and 1940's within southern California coastal drainages have reached the end of their useful lives, and their decommissioning and removal is being actively...

The Beach: A Pile of Sand
Beaches are common features along most of the earth's coastlines. The presence of a beach requires at that site the processes of sediment accretion have dominated over the processes of...
