Available Data for Management of the Egyptian Red Sea Coastal Areas
An evaluation of the available data and the existing environmental conditions will help to assess the future potential impacts of oil fields operations, metalliferous muds, phosphate mining...

Review Notes on Cohesive Sediment Erosion
Comments are made on issues related to surface and mass erosion phenomena associated with cohesive sediment beds, and the entrainment of fluid mud. The rate process theory is recapped...

Moving Muds in the Marine Environment
Fine sediments with cohesive properties abound in the marine environment. We review idealized relationships that are useful in understanding flow behavior of important components of marine...

Quantifying Mud Exchange Between the Eastern Scheldt Tidal Basin and the North Sea
Net transport of sediment < 53 μm through the mouth of the Eastern Scheldt has been quantified. Combination of data on spatial and temporal variability shows that incertainties...

Trapping and Escape of Fine-Grained Sediments: Neuse River Estuary, N.C.
The Neuse River estuary and its receiving basin, Pamlico Sound, are part of a system that comprises large, shallow bodies of water which have little or no free connection with the open...

Fluid Mud Problems in Lakes, Reservoirs and Detention Ponds
An experimental study of wind induced surfacing of fluid mud bottoms in shallow water has been conducted. The experiments involved a channel placed within a wind tunnel, where a two-layered,...

The Next Earthquake
The California's October 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake confirmed must of the current research and practice about structural engineering and seismic events. It also highlighted...

Waves in a Fluid Mud Layer Flowing Down an Incline
To model the dynamics of fluid mud, lava, or debris with a high concentration of cohesive clay particles, we consider a thin sheet of Bingham plastic fluid flowing down a slope. The Bingham...

Instability of Water-Fluid Mud Interface
Erosion and entrainment of fluid mud are treated by means of shear flow analysis. The water-fluid mud system is considered as a layered system of two continua separated by a distinct interface...

Mud Coast Protection—The Malaysian Experience

Erosion Management Strategies for the Mahin Mud Beach Ondo State, Nigeria

Determining Habitat Value of Intertidal Mud Flats

New Developments About Mud Transport Models. Application to a Macrotidal Estuary
In order to assess the fate of fine particles and adsorbed contaminants due to tidal forcing in estuaries, a mathematical modeling system for cohesive suspended matter transport and bottom...

Sediment Transport Model for Muddy Tidal Rivers
This paper describes the development and application of a one-dimensional mathematical model capable of simulating the changes to the cross-sections of a muddy tidal river over a time...

Suspended Sediment Regression Model on Mud Coasts
Two statistical models of the concentration of suspended sediment on mud coasts have been developed by using the stepwise regression method. The statistical analysis in this paper is based...

Hyperconcentrations, Mud and Debris Flows—A Summary
Brief descriptions of the properties of mud and debris flow and hyperconcentrated stream flow materials and their importance to the descriptions and modeling of these flows are presented....

Mechanics of Mud Flows in Curved Channels with Uneven Beds
Most natural debris flows move through paths that are curved and that have significant bed topography. Owing to the dependence of the mechanics of wet debris containing substantial amounts...

Field Data Collection and Analysis of Hyperconcentrations and Mud Flows
Hyperconcentrated flows and mud flows exhibit properties quite dissimilar from Newtonian fluids. In order to further our understanding of such phenomena, field data have been collected...

Sedimentation in Mud Mountain Reservoir at High Discharge
Mud Mountain Dam is a single purpose flood control project completed in 1948 on the White River in the State of Washington. The White River drains the northern and northeastern slopes...

Estuarine Mud Flow Modeling
This paper presents a model for the simulation of selective withdrawal of estuarine mud. This research is part of the investigation of the design of a mud pumping plant as an alternative...
