Wave Attenuation at the Mobile Stable Berm
This paper describes work examining the ability of submerged berms to `filter' certain erosive wave energy while allowing accretionary type waves to pass unhindered. Analysis of wave data...

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...

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...

Observations of Wind Wave Growth by ERS-1 SAR
Spatial variations of ocean waves can be observed from space-borne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images of ocean surface. For a steady offshore wind, the growth of wind wave from an upwind...

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

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...

Distribution of Chlorophyll-a and Influence factors in Dapengao
The Present Paper majority describes the distribution and annual variational characteristics of the content of chlorophyll - a in the waters of Dapengao, Daya Bay of Guangdong Province....

NOAA/NMFS Restoration Center
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) represents the public as a Federal Trustee for living marine resources and their habitat through its Damage Assessment and Restoration...

Selection of Superior Planting Stocks and Development of Regeneration Techniques for Coastal Restoration: A Pilot Study
There is an increasing demand in the U.S. for wetland plants to be used for marsh restoration and coastal stability projects. However, physiologically adapted wetland plants suitable for...

Geology of the Southern North Sea Basin
The southern North Sea basin has had a long and complex geological history. Between Late Carboniferous and the end of Triassic times, the basin was largely confined between two ancient...

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...

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...

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

The Planning and Design of Multipurpose Artificial Barrier Reefs
Multipurpose artificial barrier reef is proposed for the enhancement of fisheries as part of the purpose of entire system of structures in Japan. As part of our planning efforts we are...

Methodology for Validation of a Tampa Bay Circulation Model
The National Ocean Service is presently conducting the Tampa Bay Oceanography Project, including development and application of a three-dimensional circulation model to the Bay, and collection...

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...

Modelling of Coastal Circulation in Singapore Waters—A Hybrid Approach
A hybrid modelling technique which involves the integration of numerical and physical models has been used to study tide induced circulation in Singapore coastal waters. The modelling...
