Water Quality of the Wadden Sea
A brief overview will be given of the different sources of input to the Wadden Sea (rivers, land run-off, atmosphere, dumping). The specific problems encountered in comparing the different...

The Ecosystem of the Wadden Sea
The Wadden Sea is a unique landscape and one of the last large and relatively undisturbed ecosystems in northwest Europe and therefore a wetland of international importance. At the same...

The Protection of the Wadden Sea in an International Perspective: Planning, Protection, and Management of the Wadden Sea
This paper describes the state of the protection, conservation and management of the Wadden Sea by the three countries, Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands in the framework of their joint...

Coastal Planning for Recreation in Denmark along the North Sea Coast
The aim of this article is to describe the background for and planning of the nearshore areas along the Danish North Sea coast, especially on the basis of the high recreational value of...

Coastal Erosion Management of Sandy Beaches in Denmark
The Danish North Sea coast is a very exposed coast and has therefore suffered from severe erosion problems during centuries. Since 1982, coastal protection has been carried out in an increasing...

Aquatic Disposal of Dredged Material in the Belgian Part of the North Sea
Extensive research and study on the behaviour of dredged material after dumping in the sea has been conducted on the disposal grounds S1 S2 and Zb Oost located in the southern Bight of...

Coastal Protection in the Past Coastal Zone Management in the Future? Case Study for the Ems—Weser Area, Germany
The mainland along the German North Sea coast is low lying land; parts are sheltered by islands. History of coastal protection started about one thousand years ago; in the 13th century...

The French and Belgian Coast from Dunkirk to De Panne: A Case Study of Transborder Cooperation in the Framework of the Interreg Initiative of the European Community
The North Sea coast between the French town of Dunkirk and the Belgian sea resort of De Panne consists of sandy beaches bordered by dunes. A number of smaller sea resorts lie between these...

Argentina: Coastal Lagoons and Other Circulation—Restricted Environments
Argentina shows a peculiar profile concerning coastal management. On one hand the country does not have a integrated coastal management program as defined by international institutional...

Patos Lagoon
Patos Lagoon is one of South America's most important lagoonal environments. There is a complex of basins, controlled by the coastal lagoons Mirim and Patos, whose salinity regime is influenced...

Framework for the Planning and Coastal Management of the Concepcion, San Vicente and Coronel Bays, Chile
During recent years, coastal area degradation in the Biobio Region, especially in the enclosed bays and estuaries, have been monumental. At this time, the progressive loss of resources,...

Indian River Lagoon Consensus Management, Florida
The Indian River Lagoon, Florida is a bar-built estuarine system extending along forty percent of Florida's Atlantic coast. While one of the earliest mapped features in North America,...

Establishing a Human Factors Focus and Approach for North Carolina's IVHS Efforts
The paper discusses the behavioral and human factors issues associated with the development and operation of North Carolina's CARAT program (Congestion Avoidance and Reduction for Autos...

Impacts of Climate Change on Evapotranspiration and Runoff in the Tennessee River Basin
Recent climate change studies using general circulation models demonstrated the potential for a 1 to 3°C warming in North America, as well as increases in precipitation and evaporation...

Estimation and Regionalization Procedures of Nash's Instantaneous Unit Hydrograph
A 'total fit' method is suggested for computing Nash's instantaneous unit hydrograph (IUH) which minimizes the errors of all ordinates between the observed and generated hydrographs. Previous...

Global Search Technique to Calibrate Rainfall Runoff Models
The calibration of rainfall-runoff models in hydrology has not yet reached a satisfactory solution, using either manual or automatic procedures. This paper introduces a simple conceptual...

Estimating Runoff from Precipitation and Temperature
Increasing demands for water and the global climate change resulting from the CO2 buildup in the atmosphere require an improved evaluation of surface-water...

Effect of Agricultural Drainage on Water Quality in the Southeastern Coastal Plain
This paper is designed to consolidate selected research and results from investigations of the impacts of agricultural drainage on water quality in North Carolina, South Carolina, and...

Stratification Models Sensitivity to Solar Radiation Data
A one-dimensional water quality model (WESTEX model) for simulation of thermal stratification is used to test the performance of such models related to hydrometeorological input data....

Salt Transport in a Tidal Canal, West Neck Creek, Virginia
Flow and stability were monitored during 1989-92 in West Neck Creek, Virginia, which provides a direct hydraulic connection between the saline waters of Chesapeake Bay and the relatively...
