Motivating Factors Behind Environmental Activism: A Case Study of Beach Clean-up Participants
This study was initiated to investigate the motivating factors behind environmental activism. Participants in a Rhode Island beach clean-up were surveyed for information about their attitudes,...

Project Performance: Ocean City, Maryland Beach Nourishment
Detailed monitoring of the performance of a two-phase beach nourishment project has provided valuable information on beach fill behavior and long-term response of a beach fill to prevailing...

Performance of Beach Nourishment at Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
Between May and August, 1990, approximately 2.34 million cubic yards of sand were placed along 35,000 feet of the Atlantic shoreline of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. The project...

Beach Fill Performance at the Lido Beach, Florida, Groin
Lido Beach on the Gulf of Mexico in Sarasota, Florida traditionally has been used as a placement area for sand dredged from the adjacent New Pass federal navigation project. At the end...

Relationship Between Wave Climate and Performance of a Recently Nourished Beach, Indian Rocks Beach, Pinellas County, Florida
A large beach nourishment project was completed at Indian Rocks Beach on the central Gulf coast of Florida in December of 1990. The performance of the project has been monitored monthly...

Monitoring the Evolution of a Beach Nourishment Project
Despite the increasing popularity of beach nourishment in response to coastal erosion, few projects have been monitored sufficiently to allow quantification of the sediment transport mechanisms...

Beach Enhancement Through Nourishment and Compartmentalization: The Recent History of Santa Monica Bay
During the past half-century, the beaches in the central and southern portions of Santa Monica Bay have been significantly enhanced by a combination of artificial nourishment and structural...

Predictability of Beach Nourishment Performance
Beach nourishment projects represent planform anomalies and are generally placed steeper than the natural profile. These disequilibrium conditions induce cross-shore and longshore sediment...

Optimization of Beach Fill Transitions
Accentuated erosion or end loss by excessive longshores and transport occurring at abrupt lateral terminations of beach fills can compromise a fill's shore-protection functioning and longevity....

Revere Beach and Point of Pines, Massachusetts, Shore Front Study
