Environmental Effects of Beaufort Sea Causeways
Two gravel-fill causeways have been constructed into the shallow nearshore Beaufort sea on the north coast of Alaska for the development of petroleum reservoirs. These long (4-8 km) structures...

Extracting Dynamics from Ocean Wave Time Series Data
Recent developments in chaotic dynamics have indicated that qualitative information of a dynamical system can be extracted from the observation of a single time series as the time series...

Oceanographic Earth Observations by Space Shuttle Astronauts
Thirty years of manned space flights have produced over 100,000 photographs of the Earth. Many of these photographs describe various coastal processes and oceanographic phenomena at a...

NOAA's Tampa Bay Oceanography Project
The Office of Oceanography and Marine Assessment of NOAA's National Ocean Service (NOS) is presently conducting the Tampa Bay Oceanography Project (TOP). TOP was undertaken...

Opportunities in Applied Oceanography in the California Current
Recent developments within the US oceanographic research community and around the world have made it possible to provide ocean and atmosphere information and products in near real time...

Program for Fisheries Management and Environment Monitoring of Exclusive Economic Zone RJ - Brasil
The brazilian EEZ represents a challenge to management since it has heterogeneous oceanographical and coastal conditions. Modelling and planning made for a rich country could be extremely...

Monitoring Absolute Sea Level Change
Global-scale monitoring of sea level change is a key component of the U.S. Global Change Research Program. The NOAA Global Sea Level program incorporates state-of-the-art satellite and...

Rio de Janeiro Coastal Zone Education Program
Researches and studies made by the Department of Oceanography of the Institute of Geoscience of the State University of Rio de Janeiro - UERJ, evidenced the need for educational support...

NOAA's Coastal Ocean Database and FOCOS Program
The NOAA Center for Ocean Analysis and Prediction (COAP) was recently formed in Monterey to support collection, distribution, and analysis of marine data for application to coastal ocean...

HF Radar Ocean Surface Mapping in Monterey Bay as a Prototype for California Coastal Environmental Monitoring and Governance
A network of coastal HF radars is being established to provide real-time coverage of ocean surface currents, onshore waves, and ultimately wind fields over Monterey Bay. Data products...

Rip Currents: Human Impact and Forecastibility
Annually, a large number of people in the United States drown in the surf zone. This study determines the number of surf drownings each year, mainly in Dade and Broward counties of southeast...
