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...

Preliminary Results of Direct Tension Tests on First-Year Sea Ice Samples
We present the initial results of our tests to determine the tensile behavior of columnar sea ice over a range of temperatures extending from -20 to -3°C and strain rates of 10-5...

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...

Photography from Space as Environmental Regulatory Tool: Remote Sensing and the Prosecutor

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...

Analytical Solutions for Determining the Location of the Saltwater Interface Below a Strip Barrier Island
Analytical solutions are developed to locate the position of the saltwater-freshwater interface below a barrier island....

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...

Rise and Intrusion of Caspian Sea Water into Mazandaran Province Coastal Lands
The Caspian sea water level was -29.13m (MSL) in 1977 and reached -27.68m in 1987. Although the rise and fall in the sea water level has been recognized as a periodic phenomenon (every...

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...

An Update to CoastWatch—NOAA's New Capability for the Coastal Ocean
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) CoastWatch project was initiated in August 1988 in response to a red tide event off the North Carolina coast....

A New Approach to Ocean Data Management
Ocean Data Management is the collection, storage, analysis and dissemination of a wide variety of physical, chemical, biological and geological data useful for research purposes in the...

Effects of Sea Level Rise on the California Coast
Although California is thought to be an emerging coastline which would be little affected by a change in sea level, a 5 foot rise over the next 100 years could have a significant impact...

Implications of Sea-Level Rise and Climate Change on Two Developing Resort Islands in Thailand and Singapore
The increasing demand of coastal tourism in the East Asian Seas region has led to islands being developed into holiday resorts. The appeal of these resort islands depends on the developed...

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...

G6 Coastal Morphodynamics
The contents and the backgrounds of the European coastal modelling programme 'G6 Coastal Morphodynamics', in the framework of the EC-sponsored Marine Science...

Shoreface Connected Ridges Along the Dutch Coast
Quasi-synoptic current measurements were obtained across the Dutch shoreface connected ridges using an acoustic Doppler current profiler. The measurements are used to evaluate the role...
