Resource Leveling Based on the Modified Minimum Moment Heuristic
CPMLevel is an MS Windows computer program that utilizes the minimum moment algorithm to smooth the histogram of a resource in both traditional and overlapped CPM networks. It has interactive...

Optimal Resource Leveling Using Integer-Linear Programming
The project manager strives to schedule various project tasks as efficiently as possible. But, resources available to the project manager are limited. A problem arises when a schedule...

Depositional Sediment on Intertidal Marshes Near Terrebonne Bay and Atchafalaya Bay, Louisiana
The net transport of inorganic sediment through tidal bayous and dispersal into adjacent marsh systems are considered important contribution to marsh accretion. Marsh habitats are dependent...

Short-Term Water and Suspended-Sediment Fluctuations in a Louisiana Marsh
To determine the timing of and driving forces for sediment suspension and deposition and the effect of impoundment, three self-recording instrument packages were deployed in a section...

Marsh Submergence vs. Marsh Accretion: Interpreting Accretion Deficit Data in Coastal Louisiana
The apparent imbalance between relative sea-level rise and vertical marsh accretion is frequently cited as a major factor in the problem of wetland loss in Louisiana. Rates of relative...

A Global Vulnerability Assessment: Vulnerability of Coastal Areas to Sea-Level Rise
Assessment of the global vulnerability (GVA) of the various resources of the world's coastal zone to an acceleration of sea-level rise (ASLR) and related climate change effects requires...

Holocene Sedimentation and Coastal Wetlands Response to Rising Sea Level at the Aucilla River Mouth, a Low Energy Coast in the Big Bend Area of Florida
The shallow dip of the Florida carbonate platform results in low wave energy on Florida Big Bend coasts. Therefore sedimentation is dominated by river-and tidal-hydrodynamics near the...

The Napeague Dunes, Long Island, NY
The Napeague Dunes of eastern Long Island, N.Y., consist of a series of three migrating parabolic dunes. The area presently occupied by this system was formerly a 2.7 Km wide inlet following...

Geomorphological and Geological Evolution of the Quaternary Nile Delta and its Rate of Subsidence
Three-dimensional geomorphological models have been constructed for the Nile Delta, simply illustrate its development and geologic evolution from the Late Pliocene to Recent. This attempt...

Mississippi-Alabama: Natural and Man-Made Shores—A Study in Contrasts
Quaternary formations essentially define the present configuration of the Alabama-Mississippi coast. As the result of the coast's tectonic history, they are much less widespread and thinner...

Coastal Erosion and Sea Level Rise: Residents' and Local Officials' Response
Recent concern about the possibility of the sea rising due to the warming of the atmosphere and the resultant melting of the polar ice caps has prompted attention to the question of how...

Transformation of the Black Sea Coast and Shelf by Wave Erosion in Pliocene-Pleistocene
Theory of transformation of coast and shelf of the ancient and modern seas by waves is presented. It allows to work out a scheme of adjoining land and shelf evolution on the basis of basin...

The North Black Sea and the Sea of Azov Coasts Under a Possible Greenhouse-Induced Global Sea-Level Rise
The first attempt is presented to compile a map of coastal evolution of the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov under the possible accelerated greenhouse-induced sea-level rise by 1m (medium...

The Morphology of the Anglian Coast
The morphology of the Anglian coast consists of three Integrated Scale Coastal Evolution (ISCE) units. A bay, marked by the 10m bathymetric contour, extends from Flamborough in the north...

Long Term Water Level Observations and Variations
Numerous tide gouges have been recording data along the coastlines of the southern North Sea for more than a century, at Amsterdam even since 1700. Every tide gauge locality has its own...

Coastal Erosion in Senegal—The Case of Rufisque
Studies conducted in Rufisque (Senegal) have contributed to the understanding of coastal erosion processes. The historical evolution of the coastline between 1959 and 1980 shows different...

The Ivorian Coastal Zone: Morphology and Sedimentary Processes—Examples from Grand-Lahou and Abidjan
The Ivorian coastal zone is composed of three main morphological units. The South west coast stretching from Tabou to Sassandra is composed of successions of rocky capes separated by narrow...

Vulnerability of West Africa to Accelerated Sea-Level Rise
Studies of Senegal and Nigeria are reviewed in the context of regional vulnerability to accelerated sea-level rise. They suggest that West Africa is particularly vulnerable for a number...

Issues and Problems in Controlling the Threats of Erosion Along the Nigerian Coastline
Perhaps the most serious problem facing the almost 50% of the world's population which today occupies the coastal zones around the world, is the issue of global warming and the impending...
