Molluscs as Climate Indicators: Preliminary Stable Isotope and Community Analysis

Some Results from the Second Iteration of Total-System Performance Assessment for Yucca Mountain

An Offshore Island Wave Sheltering Model
The wave climate along Southern California Coastal area is greatly modified by the existing systems of natural islands shown. As deep water wave approach the nearshore area, they generally...

Climate Change
The wide range of predictions from global climate models most often encourages a wait-and-see approach. These uncertainties and a trust that conventional policy is sufficient to accommodate...

Empirical Guidance for Siting Berms to Promote Stability or Nourishment Benefits

Rainfall and Net Infiltration Probabilities for Future Climate Conditions at Yucca Mountain
Performance assessment of repository integrity is a task rendered difficult because it requires predicting the future. This challenge has occupied many scientists who realize that the...

The Influence of Long Term Climate Change on Net Infiltration at Yucca Mountain, Nevada
Net infiltration and recharge at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, a potential site for a high level nuclear waste repository, are determined both by the rock properties and past and future changes...

Impacts of El Niño in Western Washington
The climatic phenomenon called El Nino is described, and its impact on hydrologic conditions in western Washington is shown for two recent events. Impacts on water management during the...

A Global Vulnerability Assessment: Vulnerability of Coastal Areas to Sea-Level Rise
Assessment of the global vulnerability (GVA) of the various resources of the world's coastal zone to an acceleration of sea-level rise (ASLR) and related climate change effects requires...

A Coastal Ecosystem Management and Its Effects in a Subtropical Climate: The Conceicao Lagoon
The Conceicao Lagoon on Santa Catarina Island along the south coast of Brazil constitutes a natural and scenic resource of ecological, economic and scientific value. Due to natural and...

Coastal Erosion Analysis of the Belle Fontaine Area, Jackson County, Mississippi
The Belle Fontaine area contains the only remaining natural beach on the mainland Mississippi shoreline. The fine to medium-grained sand beach is the result of erosion and retreat of the...

Physical Modeling of Barbers Point Harbor
Physical modeling is a practical tool in the design of coastal projects. A physical model of Barbers Point Harbor located on the island of Oahu, Hawaii was constructed so that different...

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...

A Cooperative Coastal Data Collection Program in Washington State
The Washington State Department of Ecology and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have initiated a cooperative agreement for the joint management and funding of the Washington Coastal Data...

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...

Women as a Factor of Global Warming and Sustainability of Coastal Resources of West and Central Africa
