Low Cost Wave Measurement Program
This paper addresses some problems related to a wave measurement program in the coast emphasizing costs, environmental hazards and technological problems. Subjects covered include coastal...

Geocosta Operations—A Program of Oceanographic Expeditions for the Brazilian Inner Shelf
In July 1979, a new expedition was conducted with the R.V. Almirate Camara, in the same area as GEOMAR X, with the following purposes: surveying profiles with side scan sonar and conducting...

Sea Level Rise and Water Resources Management
Sea level rise due to greenhouse effect will create significant impacts on coastal water resources management. Possible future management strategies to offset salinity intrusion and to...

Nuclear Waste Dumping in the Ocean—Is It Over?
At the Ninth Consultative meeting of the London Dumping Convention (LDC) in September, 1985, the nations of the world voted to indefinitely continue a two year moratorium prohibiting the...

Ocean Incineration—A Burning Issue (With Emphasis on the Sea-Surface Microlayer)
Ocean incineration of hazardous wastes has been encouraged by the Environmental Protection Agency. Many scientists as well as other citizens are concerned that potential impacts have not...

Should We Use the Open Ocean to Ease Pressure on the Coastal Zone?
This paper proposes a framework for analysis of issues arising from the prospect of deep-ocean dumping of wastes. While it takes no stand on the issues themselves, it examines the motives...

Local Government Involvement in Coastal Projects
Presented in this paper is a review of the four pronged approach to coastal management utilized by the Terrebonne Parish Consolidated Government, Louisiana. The management program includes...

Global Issues—Local Responsibilites
This paper discusses the concrete, day-to-day benefits of international regulations, the specific roles that local officials and interest groups play in developing successful international...

Caribbean Coastal Marine Productivity (CARICOMP): A Regional Laboratory Network
The CARICOMP (Caribbean Coastal Marine Productivity) project began with a workshop in 1982. Marine scientists from 12 Caribbean nations gathered to consider the factors controlling the...

Coriolis and Our Land-Sea Environments
The characterizations of the Coriolis Acceleration Vector with water pile-up and circulating currents, which produce shoreline erosion or accretion were presented at the Coastal Zone 85...

Forecasting Currents in Coastal Waters
A service for current and temperature forecasts has been developed for the coastal waters along the west coast casts has led to several improvements. Future modeling efforts are expected...

Modeling Dilution of Wastewater Outfalls in a Tidal Estuary
Field studies and modeling have been conducted to assess initial dilution of wastewater outfalls in Puget Sound, a fjord-like estuary in the State of Washington. Recent numerical dilution...

Sea Level Changes: A Corps of Engineers Perspective
The purpose of this discussion paper is to review current Corps of Engineers policy in relation to a possible significant increase in general sea level. A significant relative sea level...

Time Variability of Suspended Material Concentrations in Estuaries
The concentration of suspended materials (SMC) within estuarine systems varies in response to a variety of factors. This variability complicates sampling SMC and establishes particular...

Effect of Atmospheric Forcing on Tide Propagation
This paper presents computations and observations indicating that nonlinear interaction with wind waves and subtidal sea level changes can change estuarine motion in the tidal frequency...

National Repositories for Tissue From Fish
A major barrier to providing an invaluable tool to the environmental sciences is the lack of any defined regional or national repository for tissues and data from fish and invertebrates...

Hypsometry as a Tool for Calculating Coastal Submergence Rates
A contemporary rise in relative sea level is slowly submerging the outwash plain which lies behind Long Island's barrier beaches. While relative sea level change rates vary...

Longterm Changes of Tidal Regime in the German Bight (North Sea)
Sea level changes are caused by astronomical tides (periodical changes), meteorological, geological and oceanographical conditions, vertical movements of the earth's crust...

The Review of the Comprehensive Survey of the Coastal Zone of China
The purpose of the survey is to provide basic data for coastal zone development of China. The scope of survey is a long narrow belt area alongshore. The contents of the survey include...

Rising Sea Level, Storms, and Coastal Erosion at Ocean City, Maryland
This paper describes the 'greenhouse effect', and its impact on future sea level rise; provides an overview of the possible impacts on Maryland and other coastal...
