Sea Level Rise and Maritime Boundaries: The Effect of Rising Sea Level on International Boundaries
This paper, jointly written by a lawyer and a coastal geomorphologist, will examine the possible responses at a legal level to the implications of global warming induced sea level rise...

Evidence for Eustatic Influence on Cenozoic Sedimentation of Coastal Washington and Oregon
Comparison of the absolute age boundaries of the West Coast biozonation with the Cenozoic global cycle chart indicates that 12 of the 15 zonal boundaries coincide with regressive sequence...

Mechanics of Cohesionless Sediment Transport in Coastal Waters
Conceptual mechanics-based models for sediment transport processes in steady and unsteady turbulent boundary layer flows are derived and discussed. To the extent possible the predictions...

Turbulence Measurements and Parameterizations
Bottom boundary layer and exchange models account for high frequency turbulence via Reynold's averaging and the most advanced closure formulations required by this averaging...

Suspended Sediment Load at Three Time Scales
Suspended sediment loads were examined at the three time scales of time-series-averaged, wave-by-wave and instantaneous during the wave cycle. Field measurements recorded on a natural...

The Structural Evolution of a Wave-Current Sediment Concentration Boundary Layer

The Vertical Structure of Cross-Shore Currents from Wind-Induced Setup
Most of the storm surge models presented in the literature are vertically averaged and calculate only the sea-surface elevation and mean flow. Whereas these models may be adequate for...

A Study of Volcano Slope Hydrology in Japan

Measurement of Air Entrained Flow Properties
The paper discusses conventional methods used in the field to measure bubble size, air concentration, intermittency, and velocity of air entrained flows in chutes....

Surface Renewal Due to Large Flow Structures in Open Channel Flow
It is shown that under certain flow conditions, surface renewal cannot be understood as an exclusive result of the bursting occurring near the wall, as proposed by several authors. Flow...

A Fluorescence Technique to Measure Concentration Gradients near an Interface
A new fluorescence technique which measures the concentration profile in a mass transfer boundary layer is described. It uses a tracer whose fluorescent intensity is inversely proportional...

From Mean Fluxes to a Detailed Experimental Investigation of the Gas Transfer Process
Three new experimental techniques are discussed which allow a much more detailed investigation of the gas transfer process than any previous techniques. Using heat as a proxy tracer for...

Structure of the Drift Current Observed Below Capillary-Gravity Waves
Measurements by laser-Doppler velocimeter were performed in a wind-wave tank to investigate the structure of the water surface boundary layer under capillary-gravity wind waves in the...

Soil-Rock Transition Zone: Uncertainties for Design and Construction
This paper addresses the problem of establishing definitions of the soil-rock boundary with regard to different engineering applications in the Piedmont geologic provinces. Three engineering...

Earthquake Response of Liquid-Filled Pipeline at Finite Depth Below Ground Surface
This paper deals with the problem of earthquake response analysis of pipelines, empty or fully filled with liquid and buried at a finite depth below the ground surface. Emphasis is placed...

Application of a Numerical Model to Develop Marina Concepts
A numerical model is presented to evaluate wave conditions in a marina basin for development and analysis of marina concepts. This model is based on the boundary integral equation method...

Detection of and Construction at the Soil/Rock Interface
This proceedings, Detection of and Construction at the Soil/Rock Interface, consists of papers presented at the Symposium held on October 24,...

Slug Test: Double-Porosity, Linear Boundary, and Variable Storage Effects
The intention of this paper is to focus on three aspects of the slug test that are not as familiar as the main analysis techniques: the effects of double-porosity formations, the effects...

Regional Sediment Transport in the Coastal Boundary Layer of the Central Alaskan Beaufort Sea
The characteristics of regional sediment transport in the Central Alaskan Beaufort Sea Coastal Ocean are defined by sources, marine sediment dynamics, and areas of net sedimentation. These...
