Morphological Study of Mediterranean Shore

Deepwater Ocean Outfalls for Sydney Australia

Microtunneling Meets Mother Nature
The world's first ocean thermal energy plant is getting a double. Microtunneling the second ocean intake 80 ft under the Pacific Ocean is proving challenging, partly due to...

Doubling A Pipeline
The 36 in. natural gas pipeline built 32 years ago by Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) its subsidiary Pacific Gas Transmission (PGT) from Canadian fields to central California has...

Deepwater Waves and Tsunami Produced by the Impacts of Small Asteroids
Studies of ocean sediments may be used to determine when coastal areas have been hit by tsunamis in the past. Tsunami debris has been found to be associated with the Cretaceous-Tertiary...

Impact of Non-Gaussian pdf on Reliability Estimates for Deep Water Platforms
The offshore community has invested a great deal in the analysis and design of compliant deep water platforms such as tension leg platforms (TLPs) and more recently spar platforms. Tension...

Effects of Sea Surface Movement on Offshore Structures
Examinations are made of the effects of the sea surface movement on the fundamental model response of deep-water, Wave-excited offshore structures. These effects are accounted for by using...

Modeling of Deep Water Outfall Plumes in the East Australian Coastal Ocean
The paper reports on the modeling study of deep water outfall plumes in the east Australian coastal ocean. The primary aims of the modeling were to provide estimates of plume condition...

Validation of a Continental-Scale Storm Surge Model for the Coast of Delaware
Coastal structures are designed to provide protection against various forces of nature acting in the coastal zone. Structures such as seawalls are expected to provide onshore protection...

Coastal Circulation and Sedimentation During Severe Storms
Numerical hindcasts of storm flows and sedimentation during tropical cyclones in the western Gulf of Mexico, and a northeaster in the Middle Atlantic Bight, are summarized and compared....

Linking Hydrodynamic and Biogeochemical Transport Models for Estuarine and Coastal Waters
Methodologies for linking estuarine and coastal hydrodynamic and biogeochemical transport models are reviewed and evaluated. The central premise of the review and evaluation is that intratidal...

SEASHELL - Software for the Simulation of Transport and Fate of Pollutants in Coastal Waters

Glossary of Marine Fiber Rope Terms
This book, Glossary of Marine Fiber Rope Terms, is the product of the Task Committee on Marine Fiber Rope, Technical Committee on Ocean Engineering,...

Nonlinearity in Wave Crest Statistics
The statistical properties of nonlinear wave crest amplitudes are discussed for a narrow-band random sea consistent with Stokes second-order wave theory. In particular, the probability...

New Program for the Marine Observation and Prediction Center of the Central Weather Bureau
With the increase of economic activities on the oceans and seas, the observation of marine phenomena and forecast services become more and more significant. The Central Weather Bureau...

Second Order Directional Wave Kinematics in Shallow Water
A theory numerical procedure were developed earlier to represent a real sea by the sum of many linear and second order directional wave components. Earlier publications showed that including...

Low-frequency Fluctuations of Suspended Sand and Wave Groups in the Surf Zone
Field observations of the sand suspension near the bottom in surf zone are presented and discussed. Calculated spectra of suspended sand concentration and wave envelope was found to be...

On Hurricane-Generated Seas
Two different situations in the relationship between wind speed and sea severity during hurricanes (and tropical cyclones) are clarified from analysis of measured data obtained by NOAA...

A Comparison of Wave Statistics in Uni- and Multidirectional Shoaling Seas
the transformation of six unidirectional and multidirectional seas propagating over a 1:25 planar beach are examined in a series of laboratory experiments. In all cases, the mean wave...
