Vertical Profile of Littoral Sand Tracers From a Distribution of Waiting Times

Full Scale Tests of Cladding Components
A full scale, six story, steel frame at the Building Research Institute, Tsukuba, Japan was constructed for a series of projects in the U. S. -Japan Cooperative Research Program. This...

Perforated Wave Barriers in Small Boat Piers
Perforated breakwaters can be used to reduce the energy and the height of waves entering small boat harbors. By not extending the breakwater to the bottom interference with littoral drift...

Iceberg Interactions with Offshore Structures
Various aspects include the component problems corresponding to iceberg drift in open water, iceberg drift in the vicinity of a large offshore structure, wave-induced motions of a berg,...

Coast of California Storm and Tidal Waves Study: A Regional Coastal Zone Monitoring Program
An integral aspect of the Coast of California Storm and Tidal Waves Study (CCSTWS) was the implementation of a four year comprehensive regional coastal zone monitoring program in 1983....

Foreshore Treatment as a Method of Coastal Protection
This paper describes the damages sustained by a small section of the Vancouver, British Columbia coastline during the passage of a storm in December, 1982. This stretch of protected coastline...

Man-Made Offshore Islands: An Innovative Solution to Coastal Erosion
Existing shore-parallel detached breakwaters have resulted in the accretion of sand along the shoreline in the wave shadow of the structure. Significant prograding of the beach has replaced...

Erosive Processes in the Littoral of the Venice Lagoon (Italy)
The Lagoon of Venice is separated from the sea by a thin stretch of littoral, the completeness of which is vital for the survival of Venice. This littoral is dramatically threatened by...

Erosion of the Nile Delta Coast
The construction of the High Aswan Dam has resulted in a total absence of River Nile flow into the Mediterranean, and a corresponding loss of the sediment source for the Delta. However,...

Reuse of the Brooklyn Waterfront
The New York District of the Corps of Engineers, under the New York Harbor Drift Collection and Removal Project, is in the process of removing unused and dilapidated piers along a portion...

Sources of Information for Coastal Engineering
The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is undertaking a significant effort of documenting the coastal engineering data sources either available at or published by Government agencies as...

A Microcomputer Dispersivity Evaluation Method for Thick Aquifers
The Littoral Environment Observation (LEO) program uses volunteer observers recruited to obtain daily visual observations of such coastal variables as breaker height, wave period, direction...

Littoral Environment Observation Program
This paper presents a method for determining the longitudinal, transverse, and vertical dispersivities of a thick aquifer for a free convection tracer test using only measurements from...

Examples of Sediment Distribution in the Italian Adriatic Coast. A Comparison Between the Shepard and the Nota Textural Classifications
Four sectors of the western Adriatic coast, each with a different feature, represent the test areas to evidence the differences between the two textural classifications of sediments by...

Movable-Bed Model Investigation of Littoral Drift on the Intake and Outlet of Lin-Kou Power Plant (I)
The establishment and operation of a distorted movable-bed model of the cooling water intake and outlet is described. The model employed is a three-dimensional movable-bed Froude model...
