Suspended Sediment Concentrations in a Barred Nearshore Zone
Field observations of the suspended sediment concentrations in the inner nearshore zone are made with the use of a pump-sampling system to derive time-averaged profiles and with the use...

The British Beach and Nearshore Dynamics (B-Band) Programme
A large scale collaborative field based research programme (B-BAND), aimed at measuring the small scale processes associated with nearshore dynamics on macro-tidal beaches, is currently...

Process Variation Across a Barred, Tidal Nearshore
Detailed measurements of nearshore motions and morphologic change across the inner bar-trough of a barred, tidal beach were taken at Canaveral N.S., Florida. Tidal range was <1...

Geologic Controls on the Formation and Evolution of Quaternary Coastal Deposits of the Northern Gulf of Mexico
A study of the barrier islands and wetlands in the deltaic plain of Louisiana is presented. Its purpose was to document rapid changes and to learn more about the processes responsible...

Late Quaternary Geologic Framework, North-Central Gulf of Mexico
The geologic framework of the north-central Gulf of Mexico shelf is composed of multiple, stacked, delta systems. Shelf and nearshore sedimentary facies were deposited by deltaic progradation,...

Late Quaternary (Pre-Holocene) Coastal Systems of New Jersey
The coastline and the area adjacent to the present shoreline of New Jersey has not been explored as intensely as the same region of neighboring states for pre-Holocene high sea level stillstands....

Historical Coastal Morphodynamics at St. Marys Entrance and Vicinity, Florida, U.S.A.
St. Marys Entrance is an Atlantic Ocean tidal inlel located on the Florida-Georgia state border. At the end of the nineteenth century rubble-mound jetties were constructed. Large-scale...

Beach Profile Modelling: Flume Data Comparisons and Sensitivity Tests
Some results from a deterministic computational model of beach and nearshore profile development are presented in this paper. Comparisons are made with prototype-scale flume measurements...

Monitoring of a Nearshore Disposal Mound at Silver Strand State Park
The migration of an underwater disposal berm constructed in December 1988 approximately six miles south of the entrance to San Diego Bay is investigated. The berm was composed of medium...

Design Guidance for Nearshore Berm Construction
Construction of nearshore berms has been gaining acceptance as a cost effective beneficial use of dredged material. This paper presents a systematic methodology for design and evaluation...

Circulation Patterns Within the Near-Shore Region of the Southern Basin of Lake Michigan
The southwestern basin of Lake Michigan has been subject to extreme stresses because of its close proximity to large populations. A knowledge of the current patterns within this zone would...

Eutrophication and Recurrent Hypoxia in the New York Bight: A Synthesis of Historical Data and a Numerical Model of the 1976 Anoxic Event
As a result of oceanographic programs conducted over the past four decades, a large historical data base is available, and has been used, to document areas of recurrent hypoxia and high...

Optimal Depth for Nearshore Wave Power Extractors of Fixed Type
An approach to find the water depth which brings the minimum cost of energy extracted with the wave power extractors of nearshore fixed type is proposed. A case study with Pendulor wave...
