Larger Foraminifers as Contributors to Carbonate Beach Sands
Larger foraminifers are locally significant contributors to tropical carbonate sediments, particularly in the Indo-Pacific region. The two major factors influencing foraminiferal production...

Geotechnical Aspects of Beach Restoration
Large-scale beach restoration undertaken by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Florida requires millions of cubic yards of beach quality sand. Exploration for these sand resources starts...

Settling Down
Engineers in Florida will prepare the sandy foundation of a future power plant by preloading it with sand for as long as a year....

Saving Saluda
One of the largest roller-compacted-concrete berms in the United States will stand sentinel in case South Carolina's Saluda Dam undergoes liquifaction in response to strong...

Preserving Pisa's Treasure
Pisa's bell tower, a prime example of Romanesque architecture, would be renowned even if it did not lean. Construction of the tower began in 1173 and was not completed until...

Sedimental Journey
A numerical shoreline evolution model was used to examine the shoreline changes associated with the release of 2.3 million m³ of beach-quality sediment from behind Matilija Dam in Ventura...
