A Comparative Study on the Hindcasted Wave Climates
For the various sites of Turkish Black Sea Coast wave prediction is carried out by the use of two different wind data sources obtained both from coastal meteorological stations and synoptic...

Wave Climate Studies Along the Turkish Coast of the Black Sea
Wind-generated waves produce the most powerful forces to which coastal structures are subjected. Therefore, wave information is required for the proper planning and reliable design of...

The Evolution of the Northern Adriatic Coastal Zone (Italy): The Climatic Changes and the Environment
This work considers the influence of the climatic changes on the evolutional trend of the Adriatic coastal zone, from Venice to the Punta Penna promontory, and the possible implication...

Factors Responsible for Varying Granulometric Characteristics of Sediments from the Western Nigeria Coastline
The western Nigeria coastline stretches from Badagry in the west (Longitude 5°00'00E), covering a distance of about 275km. Two major geomorphic coastal units are recognized along this...
