Mineralogic Alteration History and Paleohydrology at Yucca Mountain, Nevada
The importance of paleohydrology to the Yucca Mountain Site Characterization Project derives from the role water will play in radioactive-waste repository performance. Changes in hydrologic...

A Comparison of Two Large Scale NLP Strategies for Determining Optimal Pump Station Controls
To solve the general nonlinear problem which is not simplified using the uniform spatial demand patterns, a two-level hierarchial scheme has been identified. The purpose of this decomposition...

Debris Removal and Channel Shoaling
Hurricane Hugo was one of the worst storms of the century to strike the east coast of the United States. The storm tracked a northwesterly course approximately 11:30 P.M. on Sep. 21, 1989....

Effects of Accelerated Sea-Level Rise on Coastal Secondary Production

NOAA's Tampa Bay Oceanography Project
The Office of Oceanography and Marine Assessment of NOAA's National Ocean Service (NOS) is presently conducting the Tampa Bay Oceanography Project (TOP). TOP was undertaken...

Method for Treating the Stochastic Nature of Water Level and Wave Climate in Determining Economically Optimal Channel Depth at Small-Boat Harbors
Engineering and economic aspects of channel depth at small-boat harbors is discussed. The concept of wave-adjusted water level is shown to be important to specifying channel bottom elevation....

Tidal Dynamics and Estuarine Management in the Humber Estuary, England
The rate at which tidal energy is dissipated, that is the power expenditure, at any point along an estuary is dependent on the morphology of the estuary. The most important of the morphological...

Vulnerability of the U.S. to Future Sea Level Rise
The differential vulnerability of the conterminous United States to future sea level rise from greenhouse climate warming is assessed, using a coastal hazards data base. This data base...

Rise and Intrusion of Caspian Sea Water into Mazandaran Province Coastal Lands
The Caspian sea water level was -29.13m (MSL) in 1977 and reached -27.68m in 1987. Although the rise and fall in the sea water level has been recognized as a periodic phenomenon (every...

Monitoring Absolute Sea Level Change
Global-scale monitoring of sea level change is a key component of the U.S. Global Change Research Program. The NOAA Global Sea Level program incorporates state-of-the-art satellite and...

Geomorphology of the Lekki Barrier-Lagoon Coastline in Nigeria and its Vulnerability to Rising Sea Level
The Lekki barrier-lagoon coast stretches from Lagos (approx. long. 3°25'00E) to Ajumo town (approx. long. 4° 26'00E) a distance over 75km around 6°.25'00N...

Effects of Sea Level Rise on the California Coast
Although California is thought to be an emerging coastline which would be little affected by a change in sea level, a 5 foot rise over the next 100 years could have a significant impact...

Impacts of Sea-Level Rise in Developing Countries
Impending and ongoing impacts of sea-level rise in developing countries is being recognized increasingly because a variety of national and international efforts are beginning to document...

Implications of Sea-Level Rise and Climate Change on Two Developing Resort Islands in Thailand and Singapore
The increasing demand of coastal tourism in the East Asian Seas region has led to islands being developed into holiday resorts. The appeal of these resort islands depends on the developed...

Coastal Management and Sea Level Rise in Recife, Brazil
This article presents a review of previous studies about the environment in Recife, the historical development of the city, and the programs currently in progress with regard to coastal...

Sea Level Rise and Maritime Boundaries: The Effect of Rising Sea Level on International Boundaries
This paper, jointly written by a lawyer and a coastal geomorphologist, will examine the possible responses at a legal level to the implications of global warming induced sea level rise...

Observations of Seasonal and Interseasonal Variability in Shelikof Strait, Alaska
Nearly five years of monthly mean current data from two locations (one nearshore on the shallow shelf and one in the Shelikof sea valley) are used in conjunction with surface geostrophic...

Evidence for Eustatic Influence on Cenozoic Sedimentation of Coastal Washington and Oregon
Comparison of the absolute age boundaries of the West Coast biozonation with the Cenozoic global cycle chart indicates that 12 of the 15 zonal boundaries coincide with regressive sequence...

Processes Controlling the Retreat of the Isles Dernieres, A Louisiana Barrier-Island Chain
The Isles Dernieres is a low-lying, transgressive barrier-island chain situated about 150 km west of the modern Mississippi delta. Much of the Isles Dernieres consists of highly dissected...

Implications of Accelerated Sea-Level Rise on Louisiana Coastal Environments
Natural and human-induced processes have combined to produce high rates of relative sea-level rise and coastal land loss in Louisiana. This paper presents historical trends in sea-level...
