Farming the Sea: A Youth Education Mariculture Project
The Farming The Sea program was born in response to a crisis situation that currently faces Long Island baymen, and in a desire to assist baymen while involving local youth in a community...

Effects of Semi-Impoundment on Fish and Crustacean Nursery Use: Evaluation of a Solution
Semi-impoundment of the marsh is one of the primary 'solutions' currently recommended to combat coastal marsh erosion, and also to improve habitat for waterfowl,...

Forecasting Currents in Coastal Waters
A service for current and temperature forecasts has been developed for the coastal waters along the west coast casts has led to several improvements. Future modeling efforts are expected...

Practical Application of Acoustic Doppler Profilers
This paper discusses the advantages and limitations of the acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP), and it reviews some of the experience gained to date with the ADCP relevant to currents...

Sewage Trapping by Water Parcels in Puget Sound
Sewage effluent entering Puget Sound, Washington, often becomes trapped in discrete parcels of water. The parcels are easily identifiable in vertical density profiles as layers of well-mixed...

Numerical Modeling of the Coastal Current Regime at Yaquina Bay, Oregon
The application of a family of hydrodynamic numerical models for simulating tidal and wave-induced currents at Yaquina Bay, Oregon, is described. An overview of four numerical models is...

Sea Level Changes: A Corps of Engineers Perspective
The purpose of this discussion paper is to review current Corps of Engineers policy in relation to a possible significant increase in general sea level. A significant relative sea level...

Armor Protection for Rubble Mound Breakwaters
A brief summary of past practices in breakwater armor system design is presented. The limitations of current design procedures for rubble mound breakwaters are discussed and improved methods...

Ocean Wave Modifications by a Surface Current Field

Density Currents in Clarifiers
This paper discusses internal flow regimes associated with the density currents due to diurnal heat loading. The reported studies were carried out with the aid of physical models....

Satellites Monitor Eutrophication of Estuaries
In a study on eutrophication of estuaries, NOAA/AVHRR satellite data have been analyzed for the Changjiang River plume and the adjacent coastal areas. The different regimes identified...

Measurements of Near-Survface Current in Inlets and Bays with Synthetic Aperture Radar
Synthetic Aperture Radar, SAR, provides images of land and ocean surfaces irrespective of solar illumination, and practically under all weather conditions. Developed originally for land...

Coastal Zone '87
Coastal Zone '87 is the fifth in a series of multidisciplinary meetings on comprehensive coastal and ocean management. The papers included in this publication review technical...

The NOS Experience in Real-Time Measurements of Tidal Currents
NOAA'S National Ocean Service (NOS) uses the term RADS, Remote Acoustic Doppler Sensing, for a new class of oceanographic instruments that uses acoustic backscatter to probe...

The Evolution of a Factory Insulated Piping System
This paper reviews the developments over the past fifteen years in a factory insulated high density polyethylene piping system that has become a standard for sewage and water piping systems...

Entrainment and Mixing in Inclined Dense Plumes

Sediment Penetration in Lakes as a Result of Dredged Material Disposal and River Sediment Loads
Pollutant transport within the coastal boundary layer is highly sensitive to the vertical current structure and to the magnitude of the vertical current, especially during upwelling and...

Coastal Erosion Management in Australia and the U.S.
Current knowledge and management policies in both Australia and the U. S. favor non-structural over structural responses to coastal erosion problems wherever possible. The trend towards...

Coastal Wetland Restoration — Developers Challenge
National policy asks protection of wetlands regardless of condition and with no provision to return them to functional condition. Neither state nor federal agencies budget for capital...

Erosion of the Nile Delta Coast
The construction of the High Aswan Dam has resulted in a total absence of River Nile flow into the Mediterranean, and a corresponding loss of the sediment source for the Delta. However,...
