Estimation of Directional Spectra by ML/ME-Methods
The paper discusses the statistical Maximum Likelihood (ML) and Entropy (ME) methods for estimation of directional wave spectra. A combined ML/ME method is derived, and a reduced version...

Implementation and Validation of a Global Third-Generation Wave Model at Fleet Numerical Oceanography Center
The third-generation Wave Model (WAM) is currently being implemented at the U.S. Navy's Fleet Numerical Oceanography Center (FLENUMOCEANCEN) to replace the operational Global Spectral...

Estimation of Design Surge Heights by Utilizing Meteorologic and Oceanographic Data
Data on cyclonic storm surge height have been generated with the help of a statistical simulation model. Data on observed maximum cyclonic wind speed and the length of the continental...

Coastal and Oceanographic Impact of Hurricane Andrew

A New Correction Procedure for Shipborne Wave Recorder Data
A new correction procedure for Shipborne Wave Recorder (SBWR) wave height and spectral data is described. The method is based on a reassessment of the available frequency response measurements...

Modeling of Deep Water Outfall Plumes in the East Australian Coastal Ocean
The paper reports on the modeling study of deep water outfall plumes in the east Australian coastal ocean. The primary aims of the modeling were to provide estimates of plume condition...

Environmental Education Program
This work originated from a proposal by the Rio de Janeiro State University (UERJ). Oceanography Department, and Human Sciences and Social Integration Department of Colegio de Aplicacao-UERJ...

The Pacific Island Network
The United States has many years of experience and expertise in the management of marine and coastal resources. However, the responsibility for marine and coastal resource management is...

Transformation of the Black Sea Coast and Shelf by Wave Erosion in Pliocene-Pleistocene
Theory of transformation of coast and shelf of the ancient and modern seas by waves is presented. It allows to work out a scheme of adjoining land and shelf evolution on the basis of basin...

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...

Shoreline Management of Eastern England
This paper gives a perspective on the length of coastline falling within the boundary of the National Rivers Authority, Anglian Region (NRA) in respect of the shoreline management carried...

Survey of the Juvenile Shrimp (Penaeus) in the Lagos Lagoon, Nigeria
This paper discusses the ecology as well as the traditional capture fishery for the transitional phase juvenile shrimp of the genus Penaeus in the Lagos lagoon, Nigeria. The juvenile shrimps...

Vulnerability of West Africa to Accelerated Sea-Level Rise
Studies of Senegal and Nigeria are reviewed in the context of regional vulnerability to accelerated sea-level rise. They suggest that West Africa is particularly vulnerable for a number...

Coastal Planning in British Columbia: Problems and Solutions
British Columbia is the most western Canadian province encompassing 27,000 km of deeply incised coastline and myriad islands and waterways. The mix of varied and often conflicting uses...

The Role of the Bedford Institute of Oceanography in Addressing Marine Coastal Zone Issues

A Study of Political Decision Method for Remote Island's Environmental Management—Patterns of Remote Islands and a Political Goal
Remote islands are handicapped in their incomes and living conditions, because they are surrounded by oceans, the area is rather small, and also they are far from economic and cultural...

Oceanographic Influences on Oil Spill Movement in the Arabian Gulf

Tidal Influence on the Stratification of the Miramichi Estuary

Specifying the Offshore Environment
Hindcasting has become a generally accepted method of producing long time series of environmental events from which environmental design criteria can be developed. The need for reliable...

Modeling Nearshore Currents in the Vicinity of the Endicott Causeway, Alaska
The Endicott Causeway connects two oil production islands on the southern side of Stefansson Sound, about 5 km offshore of the Sagavanirktok River delta, to the mainland of the Alaskan...
