An Economic Contribution to Marine Park Management for Hanauma Bay, Hawaii
Hawaii's most popular underwater recreation area is the Hanauma Bay Nature Park on Oahu. To protect its valuable marine resources, the waters of the bay are designated a Marine Life COnservation...

Laboratory Testing of an Artificial Reef Erosion Control Device
A physical model study has been conducted to examine the effectiveness of a concrete artificial reef in limiting offshore, storm-induced sand loss from a nourished beach. The experiment...

Evaluation of Airborne Video Imagery for Distinguishing Intertidal Oyster Reefs
We evaluated the effectiveness of airborne video imagery in distinguishing and mapping oyster (Crassostrea virginica) reefs in Aransas Bay on the southern Texas gulf coast. Imagery obtained...

Master Planning to Resolve Hawaiian Coastal Problems
Kaneohe Bay, Oahu, Hawaii, is an extensive estuary enclosed by a coral barrier reef. Currently, the Bay is heavily used by numerous groups for a range of different types of activities,...

Design Manual for Artificial Reefs
Artificial reefs are wave-breaking structures artificially constructed from rubble to mimic the wave-control functions of coral reefs. Since these structures are located below sea level,...

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...

Modeling the Impacts of Plankton Entrainment in a Tropical Bay
As part of the permitting for a coal-fired power plant, several enhancements were made to the two-dimensional flow and transport models TEA and ELA that allowed for the quantification...

Coastal Processes and Engineering on a Micronesian Fringing Reef
In 1980, portions of the fringing reef flat protecting the village of Tafunsak, Federated States of Micronesia, were dredged to provide fill material for an airport runway access road....

Remote Automated Wave and Water Level Monitoring System Deployed at Agat Harbor, Guam
Agat Harbor, Guam is a small boat harbor excavated from a coral reef flat and protected by a detached breakwater. An automated monitoring system was designed and installed to observe wave...

What Future for Phuket?
Phuket Island is a key demonstration site for formulating Thailand's coastal resources policies. In its first two years in Phuket, reported at CZ89, the Thailand Coastal Resources...

A Reef Conservation Project Involving Sport Divers in Singapore
The limited extent of Singapore's territorial waters places almost all the area within the boundary of its harbours. This includes many of the fringing and patch reefs associated...

Numerical Simulation of Larval Dispersal and Recruitment to Coral Reefs from the Mainstream Water Circulation
Coral reef systems, such as the Great Barrier Reef, Australia, are characterized by populations of fish and invertebrates that, mostly, produce offspring as pelagic larvae. Although some...

Anchor Damage on the Coral Reef of Sombrero Island, Batangas, Philippines
A total of fifty six anchor drops and retrieval were observed in the coral reef of Sombrero Island, Batangas Philippines. The study showed that a total of 15.4164 square meters of corals...

Available Data for Management of the Egyptian Red Sea Coastal Areas
An evaluation of the available data and the existing environmental conditions will help to assess the future potential impacts of oil fields operations, metalliferous muds, phosphate mining...

Migrating East Australian Barriers and Reefs Under Greenhouse Scenario
Geological evidence which bears directly on the question of human-induced sea-level change and migrating shorelines is difficult to find. If we could find an ancient analog of the rapid...
