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...

Processes of Sediment Transport and Ebb Tidal Delta Development at a Jettied Inlet
This paper deals with the development of the ebb tidal delta following the extension of jetties at a tidal river entrance. The growth rate and morphological change are discussed using...

Residual Currents—The Variability of an Inlet Sediment Trapping Mechanism

Infragravity Wave Motion in a Tidal Inlet
Infragravity waves (20

Sorting Characteristics of Tidal Inlets
An hypothesis is presented as follows: Littoral processes at a tidal inlet remove a disproportionately higher quantity of fine grain sediment than coarse grain sediment from the littoral...

New Dredging Technology for Inlets and Beaches: Move Sand to the Pump
Conventional dredging for channel maintenance and 'mining' of offshore sand for beach restoration and renourishment 'moves the pump to the sand'....

Beach Nourishment Episodes at the Sandy Hook Unit, Gateway National Recreation Area, New Jersey, USA: A Preliminary Comparison
A chronic erosion problem at Sandy Hook resulted in two major beach nourishment operations during the 1980's, employing material dredged from nearby navigation channels. Grain...

Recent Evolution and Potential Causal Mechanisms of Cedar Island, Virginia, 1852-1986
Shoreline mapping was used to reconstruct the historical shoreline evolution of Cedar Island, Virginia in an effort to clarify the debate on barrier island response to sea level rise --...

Hydraulic Model Studies for Non-Federal Projects at Federal Dams—A Case Study
This paper will discuss the hydraulic model studies for hydropower projects developed by Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corporation (a non-federal entity) at existing Corps of Engineers...
