Historical Atlas of Tidal Creeks, San Francisco Bay, California
Historic widths and depths of 69 major tidal creeks in San Francisco Bay were studied from maps dated from 1852 to the 1980's. Survey maps by the U.S. Coast Survey (and successors, U.S....

Origin, Development and Stratigraphy of Tidal Deltas at Hurricane Pass, Pinellas County, Florida—An Example of Modern Tidal Delta Architecture from a Microtidal Coast
Sequential analysis of aerial photographs taken between 1926 and 1990 have helped to define the morphological development of the tidal deltas at Hurricane Pass, and along with other historical...

Defining the Safe Navigable Depth of the Calcasieu River Ship Channel, Louisiana
Field research conducted in the Calcasieu River Ship Channel in Louisiana is described and some results of correlations between the echo sounder records and density measurements are presented....

The Coastal Data Information Program—A Successful Federal, State and University Cooperation
The Coastal Data Information Program (CDIP) is a cooperative effort managed jointly by the U.S. Army Engineers, Waterways Experiment Station and the State of California, Department of...

Bank Erosion at the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge
The Aransas National Wildlife Refuge has been experiencing problems with the erosion along the banks of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. In order to prevent future erosion it is necessary...

Tidal Inlet Closure Effects on Three Mexican Coastal Lagoons
Coastal lagoons frequently evolve toward total isolation behind sediment barriers. We studied the effects of natural tidal inlet closures on three Mexican coastal lagoons with different...

Morphology of the Wadden Sea Natural Processes and Human Interference
The Wadden Sea can be subdivided in three morphodynamic units: the tidal flats, the inlets and the barrier islands. The deeply incised tidal inlets are the most active of these units;...

Coastal Planning in British Columbia: Problems and Solutions
British Columbia is the most western Canadian province encompassing 27,000 km of deeply incised coastline and myriad islands and waterways. The mix of varied and often conflicting uses...

Change of Estuarine Processes Due to Sea Level Rise and Navigation Channel Improvement
To investigate the relationship between the improvement of navigation channels and the change of estuarine environment under various sea level rise scenarios, numerical study was performed...

Anisotropic Effects on Flow from a Recirculation Well
We examined flow in an unconfined aquifer near a recirculation well, which consists of a source and a sink of equal strength, with emphasis on understanding the effects of anisotropy....

Hydraulic Performance of Culvert End Sections Designed for Collision Safety
A type of end section for pipe culverts that was designed for collision safety has some favorable hydraulic characteristics. These safety end sections are long and narrow with large steel...

Screening of Bridges in New Jersey for Scour
New Jersey Department of Transportation has embarked on a program to evaluate all existing bridges over waterways to assess their vulnerability to failure by scour. The Stage I (Screening...

New Jersey Bridge Scour Evaluation Program
The New Jersey Department of Transportation has undertaken an ambitious scour evaluation program for the existing waterway bridges in the state. The methodology developed and utilized...

The Tidal Inlet Characteristics of a Small California Estuary
The inlet channel of the Russian River estuary in Northern California is subject to frequent closure. The formation of a barrier beach across the inlet channel creates ponding of the river...

Scour Analysis for Bridges over Missouri and Mississippi Rivers
Engineering services are being provided for three bridge crossings, two over the Missouri River and the other over the Mississippi River. Scour consideration for the bridged waterways...

Weaver Bottoms Backwater Rehabilitation
Navigation channel dredge material was used to construct closure structures and islands in lower pool 5 on the Upper Mississippi River in 1986. Primary objectives included aquatic habitat...

Sediment Disposal and Transport in Central SF Bay
The relocation of dredged material from navigation channels in the Francisco Bay is crucial to the movement of deep-draft shipping and shallow-draft recreational vessels. The margins of...

Indian River Inlet: Is There a Solution?
Man-made changes at Indian River inlet, Delaware, have occurred over the past 6 decades. During this period the tidal prism of the Indian River-Rehoboth Bays system has increased along...

A Tidal Inlet Bridge Scour Assessment Model
Undermining of bridge structures constructed in tidal inlets is a common problem. Scour mechanisms in tidal inlets are often complex combinations of local contraction and regional tidal...

Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler for Inlet Current Measurements
A BroadBand Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (BroadBand ADCP) was used to survey tidal currents at Shinnecock and Moriches Inlets, Long Island, NY. Measurements were made remotely form...
