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 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...

Global Sea Level in the Past and Future Century
During the past 150 years sea level may have risen globally by, at the most, 1.1 mm/year from about 1850 to 1930-1940. There is no straightforward relation between climate and sea level....

Humid Tropical Zone Deltas, Their Potential and Limitations for Development: Examples from Java, Indonesia
Monsoonal rivers on Java are responsible for the rapid growth and development of river deltas along the north coast of the island. The climatic and local environmental conditions in these...

The Present Condition and Future Prospects of the Shonan Nagisa Plan
The central part of Kanagawa prefecture adjoining metropolitan Tokyo, and facing the Sagami bay is called the Shonan area. Since the 1950', the area's mild climate, abundant greenery and...

Effects of Climate Change on Drought Risks in the Apalachicola, Chattahoochee, and Flint River Basin
Possible effects of climate change on the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint (ACF) River basin is simulated with a computer model. Model inputs are monthly temperature and precipitation...

Impacts of Climate Change on Evapotranspiration and Runoff in the Tennessee River Basin
Recent climate change studies using general circulation models demonstrated the potential for a 1 to 3°C warming in North America, as well as increases in precipitation and evaporation...

A Statistical Climate Inversion Scheme and its Application in Hydrologic Impact Assessment Studies Associated with Global Climate Variability
The use of deterministic atmospheric, general circulation models (GCM's) to understand potential global climate change under doubled CO2 forcing...

Simulation of Daily Climatic Series for the Assessment of Climate Change Impacts on Water Resources
A new approach to the generation of climatic time series for studies of the impact of climate change on water resources is presented. The method adapts a current stochastic weather generator...

Adapting BMPs to California Hydrology and Climatology
The State of California has the most diverse hydrology and climatology in the United States. It boasts the highest and lowest elevations in the continental U.S. and annual rainfall varies...

Transfer Function Modeling of Evapotranspiration
The correct estimation of evapotranspiration is a fundamental step in planning, design and operation of most water resources projects. The dependence on various climatological parameters...

Modeling Water Table Response to Climate Change in a Norther Minnesota Peatland
Projections of global warming raise questions concerning the fate of wetlands in many parts of the world. In northern Minnesota, there is concern that the nearly 3 million hectares of...

Impacts of Potential Climate Change on Colorado-Big Thompson System Operations
The objective of this study is to examine the response of the Colorado-Big Thompson (CBT) system to specific local changes in climate, using the model CBTAOP to project the operating plan...

Watershed Simulation for Characterizing Droughts Under the Influence of Climate Change
