A Coastal Zone Planning Initiative for Prince Edward Island, Canada
Prince Edward Island is the smallest of the Canadian provinces, situated on the coast of the northwest Atlantic. With no point of land more than 16 km from the sea, the Island can truly...

Potential Benefits of Harvest Refugia in Channel Islands National Park and Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary
Waters surrounding the California Channel Islands are managed for many diverse, and apparently conflicting, uses. Generally, activities are permitted that do not threaten long-term resource...

Shell Island Evolution
In 1979, Shell Island was overtopped by Hurricane Bob breaching the barrier island with an opening that now has increased to a width of approximately 2.7 kilometers. Saltwater intrusion...

Anchor Damage on the Coral Reef of Sombrero Island, Batangas, Philippines
A total of fifty six anchor drops and retrieval were observed in the coral reef of Sombrero Island, Batangas Philippines. The study showed that a total of 15.4164 square meters of corals...

Resilience of Seacoast Bluestem Barrier Island Communities
Natural disturbance is an important force in population and community dynamics and barrier islands are paradigms of disturbance dominated ecosystems. They are formed, shaped, and moved...

The Coastal Area Almanac—An Inventory of the Physical and Natural Resources of the West Coastal Area of Trinidad
Trinidad and Tobago, the most southerly of the Caribbean islands possess unique and fragile ecosystems. These islands with a combined area of 5128 km2...

Shear Velocity and Eolian Sand Transport on a Barrier Island
Nearly 18 months of simultaneous measurements of atmospheric shear velocity, sand transport quantity, and beach erosion survey were made to investigate the rate of eolian sand transport...

Estimation of Overwash Bore Velocities Using Video Techniques
Overwash data were collected at a site on the Isles Dernieres, LA barrier island chain during Hurricane Gilbert in September 1988. A video technique was applied that allowed the quantification...

Mapping Barrier Island Changes in Louisiana: Techniques, Accuracy, and Results
Changes in shoreline position along Louisiana's rapidly changing barrier coastline were compiled using cartographic data sources and aerial photography from 1855 to 1989. An interactive...

Late Quaternary Geologic Framework, North-Central Gulf of Mexico
The geologic framework of the north-central Gulf of Mexico shelf is composed of multiple, stacked, delta systems. Shelf and nearshore sedimentary facies were deposited by deltaic progradation,...

Processes Controlling the Retreat of the Isles Dernieres, A Louisiana Barrier-Island Chain
The Isles Dernieres is a low-lying, transgressive barrier-island chain situated about 150 km west of the modern Mississippi delta. Much of the Isles Dernieres consists of highly dissected...

Morphodynamics of the Isles Dernieres Barrier Shoreline, Louisiana: 1984–1989
An aerial videotape mapping system was used to monitor spatial and temporal variability of the coastal morphology along the Isles Dernieres barrier shoreline. Between 1984 and 1989, nine...

Effects of Sea Level Rise on the Mississippi River Delta Plain
Geologic studies of the Mississippi River delta plain and continental shelf reveal the occurrence of several relative sea level stillstands during the last stages of the Holocene transgression....

Preservation Potential of the Delaware Atlantic Coast Barrier—Backbarrier System
Volumes of Delaware Atlantic barrier and shoreface lithosomes were digitized to evaluate preservation potential during transgression. Erosion during headland retreat of less than 0.5 km...

Migrating East Australian Barriers and Reefs Under Greenhouse Scenario
Geological evidence which bears directly on the question of human-induced sea-level change and migrating shorelines is difficult to find. If we could find an ancient analog of the rapid...
