Cross-Island Profile Response to Hurricane Gloria

Safety Improvement Planning of Port and Harbour Facilities Considering Captains' Refuge Action Criteria
Since the Jane Typhoon in 1950, which induced much damages on port and harbour facilities and the ships in the ports, it has been a custom in Japan that the large-sized ships take refuge...

Disturbance and Community Development
This paper reports on the recovery of nearshore vegetation after Hurricane Allen in 1980, change in roadside vegetation throughout a year, and the early re-establishment of vegetation...

Hurricane Damage Mitigation Planning
A variety of responses are available to reduce or mitigate the destructive forces of hurricanes. This paper is a summary of the plans developed for Long Island to help prepare the coastal...

Vertical Shelter From Hurricanes: Risk Perceptions and Politics
To reduce risks posed by high hurricane evacuation times, vertical shelters have been proposed. This paper presents a preliminary assessment of key decision makers' reactions...

A Model for Calculating the Effect of Marsh Grass on Hurricane Waves

Concrete Masonry Design and Construction Considerations in Florida

Evaluating Mitigative Options for Critical Facilities in Hurricane Prone Regions
This paper describes, and demonstrates the use of, a methodology to evaluate the safety of occupants in structures subjected to hurricane forces. Occupant safety is expressed in terms...

Storm Surge Model Sensitivity in Estuarine Areas
Under the auspices of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), a numerical study was undertaken to determine the sensitivity of predicted storm tide levels within an estuary to hurricane...

Hurricane Induced Changes in Apalachicola Bay, Fla.
Immediately prior to a hurricane a detailed study had just been completed that included description and analysis of the bay's bottom sediments and its bathymetry. A similarly...

Structural Dynamics in Hurricanes and Tornadoes
The random fluctuations of wind gusts produce dynamic interaction with structures. The objectives of this paper are to identify distinguishing differences in hurricane and tornado winds...

Model Study of a Hurricane Surge Barrier

Estimating Probable Storm Damage on Barrier Islands
This paper demonstrates a methodology for estimating probable property damage losses from hurricanes on barrier islands. Using the case study of Gasparilla Island, Florida, it estimates...

Simplified Prediction of Storm Surge on an Open Coast Using a Microcomputer
Computer-generated wind fields have a flexibility that is not available with standard manual procedure; i. e. different illustrative concepts can be given a trial run at low cost. A spreadsheet...
