Beach Erosion in Florida: A Challenge for Planning and Management
A substantial portion of the sandy beach shoreline in Florida is considered to be 'critically' eroding. 'Critical' erosion, as used...

Beyond Mitigation: Achieving Habitat Restoration and Enhancement at the Local Level
The City of Olympia, located on Budd Inlet in Puget Sound, has undertaken the development of an Urban Waterfront Plan. This plan will become part of the Shoreline Master Program, the local...

Assessment of the Nearshore Zone at St. Marys Inlet, Florida
St. Marys Inlet connects Cumberland Sound from the Atlantic Ocean and actually forms the coastline border between Georgia and Florida. Drumstick shaped barriers are located to the north...

Management of Sandy Inlets: Coastal and Environmental Engineering Imperatives
Management of sandy tidal inlets is required for maintenance of navigable channels and control of beach erosion. Management elements essentially entail 'resharing'...

Ebb Delta and Shoreline Response to Inlet Stabilization, Examples from the Southeast Atlantic Coast
Analytical studies were performed on the geomorphic evolution of four stabilized natural inlets located along the ebb-tide dominated, barrier island, southeastern coast of the United States....

Downdrift Effects of Navigation Structures on the California Coast
The impacts of navigation structures on adjacent beaches has been an important aspect of coastal engineering. The modern day birth of coastal engineering in the United States is considered...

Beach Erosion in the Town of Jupiter Island: Causes and Remedial Measures
St. Lucie Inlet, located on the lower east coast of Florida, was cut across a barrier island in 1892 and jetties were constructed on the north and south sides of the inlet in 1926 and...

Geomorphic Analysis for Enhancement and Restoration of the Tijuana Estuary, California
Geomorphic analysis and results of field investigations in the Tijuana Estuary, California, are used in developing the rationale for an enhancement and restoration design that increases...

Sechelt Inlets Coastal Strategy: Conflict Resolution Using Consensus-Based Planning and Computer G.I.S.
This project was initiated by local government to develop a strategy for the planning and management of coastal resources in an area with a fragile environment, and heavy user demands...

The Coastline of Bangladesh—An Overview of Processes and Forms
The paper describes the coastline of Bangladesh the inlet system, geometry, hydro-geo-morphological characteristics and the processes with which it is formed. The coastline has been identified...

Observations of a Tidal Inlet on a Shingle Beach
An observation and measurement program was undertaken at Batiquitos Lagoon, San Diego County, California to better understand the paths and rates of shingle movement in the littoral zone....

Optimization of Maintenance for Coastal Inlets with Uncertainty
Maintenance dredging costs the nation roughly $400 million per year. Yet, relative to other areas of water resources engineering, little attempt has been made to apply operations research...

Sand Bypassing at Indian River Inlet, Delaware
To solve a beach erosion problem north of Indian River Inlet, Delaware, the US Army Corps of Engineers Philadelphia District and the State of Delaware have constructed a fixed plant sand...

Geomorphology and Sedimentation Patterns of Tidal Inlets: A Review
Tidal inlets are generally formed by either of two mechanisms: storm generated scour channels, and closure of estuarine entrances by growth of sand spits. On depositional, coastal plain...

Wave-Current Interaction at Wells Inlet, Maine
Wells Inlet is a jettied waterway along the southern coast of Maine. Since its initial structuring and dredging for harborage, the inlet has been plagued by severe shoaling. The jetties...
