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...

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

Louisiana Cheniers: Clues to Mississippi Delta History
The cheniers of southern Louisiana have map differences, deeding differences, and granulometric differences that distinguish them from swash-built beach ridges and from dune ridges. Instead,...

Summary of Revised Potentiometric-Surface Map for Yucca Mountain and Vicinity, Nevada
The revised map for the potentiometric surface of the uppermost saturated zone in Tertiary volcanic rocks at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, is based mainly on 1988 water levels. Refinement of...
