Effects of Bed Coarsening on Sediment Transport

Modeling Hydrodynamic and Sediment Processes in Morro Bay

Natural Tracers of Coastal Sediments
The properties of natural sediments can be used to determine their sources and to trace their transport paths through coastal environments. These properties include the mineralogies of...

Currently Available Lake Dredging Techniques and the New Demand for Lake Sediments as a Beneficial Resource
Dredging is introduced as an effective lake restoration technique. The various techniques associated with each major category of equipment are explained. It is emphasized that large lake...

Application of the Texas A&M University (TAMU) Dredging Cost Model to Long Distance Transport
To develop intelligent decisions about moving sediment long distances to the coast from dams, the cost becomes a major factor. The cost will be a function of many factors including cleaning...

Regional Shoreline Group Session
California's beaches have suffered over the past decade. However to date, very little has been done to address the problem. The Sand Rights 99 conference serves as the venue for addressing...

Historical Sediment Budget Analysis of the Malibu Coastline
Sediment supply to the Malibu coastline has been continually decreasing since development began in the Santa Monica Mountains in the 1880's due to dam construction for irrigation and recreation,...

Potential Effects of San Mining and Debris Basins on Coastal Sediment Supply in Los Angeles County
The potential sediment supply to the coast in Los Angeles has been heavily impacted by human activity. In the context of rational management of beaches as a resource, it is fundamental...

Possible Sand Resources on the Reef Front Around Oahu
Large sediment deposits on the reef front around Oahu are a possible resource for replenishing eroded beaches. An overview is given on the collection of closely spaced, high-resolution...

Coastal Benefits and Impacts of Dismantling Matilija Dam
A numerical shoreline evolution model was used to examine the shoreline changes associated with the release of 2.3 million cubic meters of beach quality sediment from behind Matilija Dam....

Damn Sand Rights: Removing Rindge and Matilija Dams
Two dams built in the 1920's and 1940's within southern California coastal drainages have reached the end of their useful lives, and their decommissioning and removal is being actively...

Environmentally Friendly Transport of Reservoir Sediment for Beach Nourishment with EDDY Pump
Sand impounded behind hydroelectric, flood-control and debris dams not only diminishes the intended function of the reservoir, but also starves downstream coastline by denying natural...
