Experiences in Cleaning Up the Influence of Oil Spill on the Water Bodies
Experiences in cleaning up the influence of oil spill on water bodies of Komi Republic (European part of Russian North) and Dagestan Republic (North Caucasus) was generalized. In both...

Modeling the Impact of Sea Level Rise in Delaware Bay
A three-dimensional model of the Delaware Bay has been employed to provide insight on the impact of a 1.0 ft (0.304 in) sea level rise on salinity conditions in Delaware Bay. Model results...

Mixing Processes in the Dangava River Estuary
The aim of this report is to present main changes in the hydrology of the Daugava River estuary after its natural water flow became regulated and to present a simple physical model of...

Managing the Impacts of Storm Surges on Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria
Victoria Island is one of the barrier islands along the Nigerian Coast. The others are Lagos, Lekki, Ikovi, and Badagry. A general characteristic of these barrier islands in Nigeria is...

The Caspian Sea Transgression (Environmental Medical Aspect)
From 1978 until 1994 the level of the Caspian Sea has risen by 220 cm, in 1994 by 30 cm. The study of environmental medical situa tion in the Russian zone of the sea transgression impact...

River Dnister Pollution with Toxic Waste as a Result of Accident at Potassium Fertilizers Factory
River Dnister has a length of 1,352 km. Its spring is situated in Carpathian Mountains at the height of more than 900 m. Dnister runs across the territory of Ukraine and Moldova Republic...

Wetland Restoration in Southern North Sea Coastal Areas: The Experience of Britain and The Netherlands
Over the past 500 years, extensive reclamation of tidal wetland areas in the lowlands surrounding the Southern North Sea has taken place. In the Netherlands, reclamation has been an essential...

Two- and Three-Dimensional Hydrodynamic Modeling of the Salton Sea, California
The Salton Sea, the largest surface water body in California, faces a myriad of problems related to rapidly changing water levels, rising salinity, accelerated eutrophication, fish kills,...

Propeller Wash Induced Erosion at Quay Walls
The characteristics are examined of the sea bed erosion produced by the scouring action of a ship's propeller wash acting against a quay wall. The rate of development of erosion...

Strategies for Operation of Orange County Water District Talbert Seawater Intrusion Barrier, California
Heavy groundwater production in the area of coastal Orange County accounts for large seasonal fluctuations in water levels that can cause groundwater gradients to reverse seasonally. The...

Transport Modeling of the Coastal Waters of Oahu, Hawaii
A hydrodynamic model of the coastal waters around the island of Oahu, Hawaii has been constructed to provide quantitative information on the movements and mixing of water that are to be...

Use of δ¹8O and δD to Define Seawater Intrusion
On the basis of previous studies, more than 60 km² of upper aquifer system underlying the Oxnard Plain was believed to be intruded by seawater. Recent work has shown that there are sources...

Economic Impact of Managing Sea Water Intrusion
Sea water intrusion into a coastal aquifer may result from continued over extraction of the aquifer. In many coastal communities, sea water intrusion has led to artificial recharge programs...

Sediment Erosion Rate in the Baltimore Harbor
In-situ erosion experiments were conducted at four selected sites in the Baltimore harbor in May 1995 using the VIMS Sea Carousel. The measurements showed that the erosion rate decreased...
