The Groundwater Replenishment (GWR) System is a regional water supply project sponsored jointly by the Orange County Water District (OCWD) and the Orange County Sanitation District (OCSD)....

Rebuilding an Island
Following centuries of rising sea levels and pounding waves, almost all of Poplar Island had, by the 1990s, been lost to erosion in the Chesapeake Bay. Today the land is on its way back,...

Storm-Water Strategy
Water pollution laws are certainly nothing new, but increased public scrutiny, beach closures, and media coverage—particularly in Orange County, California—have placed new pressures on...

Physical Model of Current-Induced Scour at Ventura Harbor
This paper describes a 1:25-scale movable-bed physical model study of scour resulting from longshore current passing through a narrow gap on the leeside of the detached breakwater at Ventura...

In Situ Behavior of Breakwaters in Constantza Port—Romania
In order to build breakwaters, especially in the areas with heavy storms, a special analysis on the several factors is necessary. In addition, surveillance of time behavior of breakwaters...

Advances in Buoy Technology for Wind/Wave Data Collection and Analysis
Considerable advances have been made recently to reduce the cost of gathering meteorological and oceanographic data from coastal waters, especially for meteorological and oceanographic...

St. George Habor—Berm Breakwater Construction Considerations
During the period 1984-1987 three berm breakwaters with a total length of approximately 800 meters were constructed at St. George Harbor on St. George Island in the Pribil of Chain of...

Rhythm of Beachrock Levels in Contrasting Plate Settings: Rifting Red Sea and North American-Caribbean Plates
Sequences of beachrocks have been compared from the northern Red Sea, the North American plate (north shore of Puerto Rico), and an island of the Caribbean plate. In all these areas the...

Characteristics and Implications of Relict Carbonate Paleoshorelines
Throughout the Florida-Bahamas region, the accumulation of coastal carbonate deposits, excepting the present highstand, appears to be episodic. Back through time these deposits provide...

How the Impacts of Urbanization Are Being Addressed in the Los Angeles River Watershed
Due to an increased interest and concern about the Los Angeles urban environment, studies have begun to focus on the local water cycle and the impact of impervious land on the Los Angeles...
