Sea-Level Rise in Senegal: Impacts and Responses
The potential impacts and responses of sea-level rise on the coastline of Senegal are analyzed with an emphasis on regional distribution. Impacts include loss of land and the economic...

Holocene Evolution of Deltas on the East Coast of India
Disposition of beach ridges vis-a-vis paleo river courses has helped in recognizing several abandoned delta lobes and reconstructing the stages in the progradation of various deltas on...

Relative Sea Level Rise and Coastal Erosion in the Yellow River Delta, China and Management Strategies

Evolution of the Santee/Pee Dee Delta Complex, South Carolina, USA
The Santee/Pee Dee delta is located on the north-central portion of the lower coastal plain physiographic province of south carolina, USA, which is underlain by pleistocene strand plain...

Global Sea Level in the Past and Future Century
During the past 150 years sea level may have risen globally by, at the most, 1.1 mm/year from about 1850 to 1930-1940. There is no straightforward relation between climate and sea level....

Preliminary Study on Impacts of Sea Level Rise and Response Strategies in Japan
This paper presents the outline of the study carried out by a Japanese committee on the impacts of and response options to the anticipated sea level rise and climate change induced by...

Design Manual for Artificial Reefs
Artificial reefs are wave-breaking structures artificially constructed from rubble to mimic the wave-control functions of coral reefs. Since these structures are located below sea level,...

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...

Lake-Level Declines in Karst Lake During Droughts
Lake-level declines in Brooklyn Lake, a karst lake in north-central Florida, have been investigated. Below average rainfall, vertical leakage to the underlying aquifer system, declining...

Real-Time Forecast and Its Use for Bradley Lake Project
A forecast model was developed to assist the project operator to make a realistic prediction of lake inflow and to optimize the water usage in Bradley Lake which has an active storage...

SCS Methods for Determining Irrigation Water Requirements
Technical Release No. 21 (USDA-SCS, 1970) has been used in the U.S. and around the world to design and manage irrigation projects. However, many advancements in predicting crop water use...

Annual Oscillation of Mean Monthly Water Levels at U.S. Ports
The annual variation in water level is not widely recognized among engineers. It could effect the selection of design ship channel depth or marina channel dredging, and tidal wetland creation...

Water-Level, Velocity, and Dye Measurements in the Chicago Tunnels
On April 13, 1992, a section of a 100-year-old underground freight tunnel in downtown Chicago, Illinois was breached where the tunnel crosses under the Chicago River, about 15 meters below...

Estimation of Uncertainties for Design Extreme Values of Waves and Sea Level

Dynamic Compaction: Predicting Depth of Improvement

Scour Hole Development and Stabilization at Shinnecock and Moriches Inlets, New York
A scour hole developed inside the Shinnecock Inlet channel near the tip of the west jetty. Over the years, this hole deepened to about 70 ft below the mean low water level with the average...

Remote Automated Wave and Water Level Monitoring System Deployed at Agat Harbor, Guam
Agat Harbor, Guam is a small boat harbor excavated from a coral reef flat and protected by a detached breakwater. An automated monitoring system was designed and installed to observe wave...

A Study of Salt Transport Processes in Delaware Bay
The study described here is a subset of a broader climate-related study, and is focused primarily on salinity intrusion into Delaware Bay and River. Given changes in freshwater discharge...

Simulation of Three-Dimensional Hydrodynamics in Long Island Sound: Annual Timescales
The Mellor-Blumberg three-dimensional hydrodynamic model in application to Long Island Sound includes time varying water level residual, sea surface temperature, river inflow, and wind...

Port of Portland's Berth 601 Floating Dock
The Port of Portland's facilities, being located on the Columbia and Willamette Rivers, are subjected to extreme water level fluctuations. Over the years, the Port has used floating docks...
