Design Evaluations in Support of Offshore Facilities and Gravel Islands in the Arctic
Development of oil resources in Northern Alaska has involved the design of nearshore and offshore facilities and structures in the Beaufort Sea and Prudhoe Bay in water depths ranging...

Borrow Resource Studies in Near-Shore Areas of Alaska's North Slope
Innovative and cost-effective techniques are utilized in the exploration and analysis of near-shore sources of sand and gravel on Alaska's North Slope. High quality sources...

Orthophotoquad Mapping Program for Alaska
The U. S. Geological Survey (USGS) is the lead civilian mapping agency in the United States and is responsible for creating and maintaining numerous map series. In Alaska the standard...

Ocean Dumping at the Philadelphia Site; A Case Study
This study reviews the results of eleven years of investigation of the impact of ocean disposal of sewage sludge at the Philadelphia dumpsite. The site, located on the continental shelf...

Managing Shoreline Changes in the Presence of Nearshore Shoal Migration and Attachment
The purpose of this paper is to describe these events in detail and illustrate the need for better understanding of erosion/deposition patterns around tidal inlets. Periodic beach surveys...

Toxic Contaminant Uptake in Dredged Sediment Marshes
Dredged sediments from the proposed enlargement of the Lower Mississippi River from Venice, Louisiana to the Gulf of Mexico would be primarily utilized to create up to 28,000 hectares...

Characterization of Offshore and Coastal Ice Conditions
Seasonal sea ice conditions typical of nearshore coastal zones are reviewed. Prominent ice features influencing design ice conditions for offshore structures are described. This paper...

West Breakwater-Sines Wave Climatology

Nearshore Bottom-Mounted OTEC Platforms and Pipes

Applications of a Shoreline Prediction Model

Effects of CERC Research Pier on Nearshore Processes

Field Comparisons of Cross-Shore Transport Models
During the Nearshore Sediment Transport Study experiment at Torrey Pines Beach, CA, in November 1978, beach profiles were measured over a several week period concurrent with extensive...

Finite Element Modeling of Nearshore Currents
A finite element model is developed to compute the nearshore currents induced by breaking waves in the surf zone. The normal incident wave system is employed so as to study the effects...

Groundwater — Surface Water Relationship Near Lake Michigan Shore

Nearshore Disposal: Onshore Sediment Transport

Nearshore Changes at Jettied Inlets, Texas Coast

Beach and Nearshore Processes in Southeastern Florida

Nearshore Wave Direction Gage
Bow wave formation can cause large variation in peak water level around a thin circular pile in shallow-water waves. The symmetry of this variation might be used to measure wave direction...

Nearshore Water Circulation Induced by Wind and Waves

Coastal Current of Pacific Northwest
To plan and design ocean outfall for sewage, cooling water or other wastes it is necessary to have a knowledge of the nearshore current velocities and directions. An overview is presented...
