The Unesco-Lesser Antilles Coastal Zone Management and Beach Stability Program
The aim of this program is to develop internal capabilities to conserve and manage beach and nearshore resources. The program covered six islands, Grenada, St. Vincent, St. Lucia, Dominica,...

A Coastal Zone Management Strategy for the Sultanate of Oman
As a further response to the pressures of development, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry has contracted the International Union for Conservation of nature and Natural Resources (IUCN)...

Estuarine Quality Use and Public Perception
Coastal environmental quality is determined on the basis of a relatively small number of biochemical and physical parameters which may bear little relation to the intended use of the water....

Numerical Solutions for Problems Related to Nearshore Morphology?!
In the development of numerical models of nearshore morphology various steps can be envisaged: 1. initial models: the initial bottom topography remains unchanged; spatial variations in...

Disturbance and Community Development
This paper reports on the recovery of nearshore vegetation after Hurricane Allen in 1980, change in roadside vegetation throughout a year, and the early re-establishment of vegetation...

Development of a Coastal Oil Spill Model
An integrated coastal oil spill model (designated 'SMEAR') is being developed for Minerals Management Service, Alaska, with broad application to all coastal environments....

Nearshore Sand Sources for American Samoa: An Alternative to Using Beach Sand
Using a combination of geophysical techniques, in situ observations, and sampling by scuba divers, we investigated along the south shore of Tutuila Island, American Samoa, for nearshore...

On the Definition of Fluid Mud
Fluid mud is a near-bed, high density cohesive sediment suspension layer which is a common cause of estuarial and nearshore sedimentation. It is noted that for a given sediment-fluid mixture,...
