Impact of Chemically-Induced Clay Transport and Deposition on the Hydraulic Conductivity of a Natural Sand
The purpose of this paper is to understand in part the dynamic impact of surfactants on hydraulic conductivity for designing enhanced pump and treat operations. This paper has two aims:...

Berm Breakwaters—Design, Construction and Monitoring
The philosophy of the fieldwork of Berm breakwaters was applied in Iceland. A few case histories were described with emphasis on quarry investigations, design, construction and monitoring....

Montioring and Modeling of Tandem Breakwater System at Hammond, IN
A tandem breakwater system was constructed in 1989-90 to provide protection for a large marina at Hammond, IN, at the south end of Lake Michigan. A five year monitoring program (1993-98),...

Advances in Buoy Technology for Wind/Wave Data Collection and Analysis
Considerable advances have been made recently to reduce the cost of gathering meteorological and oceanographic data from coastal waters, especially for meteorological and oceanographic...

St. George Habor—Berm Breakwater Construction Considerations
During the period 1984-1987 three berm breakwaters with a total length of approximately 800 meters were constructed at St. George Harbor on St. George Island in the Pribil of Chain of...

Larger Foraminifers as Contributors to Carbonate Beach Sands
Larger foraminifers are locally significant contributors to tropical carbonate sediments, particularly in the Indo-Pacific region. The two major factors influencing foraminiferal production...

Geotechnical Aspects of Beach Restoration
Large-scale beach restoration undertaken by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Florida requires millions of cubic yards of beach quality sand. Exploration for these sand resources starts...

Calibration of Water-Velocity Meters
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), as part of its responsibility to appraise the quantity of water resources in the United States, maintains facilities for the calibration of water-velocity...

The Determination of Velocity Spectra and Dissipation by Direct and Indirect Means using Second-Order Accurate PIV
In this paper we present a 2 nd order accurate technique in space (following Wereley & Meinhart's (2001) extension of Cowen & Monismith's (1997) dynamic sub-window PIV...
