The TMA Wave-Energy Constraint and Cohesive Shore-Profile Shapes
A relation by Andreanov between wave-energy loss and nearshore slope, when combined with the TMA wave-energy constraint, is shown to closely approximate the classical Bruun/Dean shape....

An Offshore Island Wave Sheltering Model
The wave climate along Southern California Coastal area is greatly modified by the existing systems of natural islands shown. As deep water wave approach the nearshore area, they generally...

Three-Dimensional Behaviour of a Multiple Bar System

Some Benefits of Grid by Number Sampling
Describing the overall sediment composition of gravel-bed river reaches and depositional bars is a difficult problem due to spatial variations in the sediment size. Past research has focused...

Investigation of the Offshore Bathymetry and Sedimentology of Folly Island, SC: Determination of Potential Offshore Sand Reseves for Beach Renourishment
The authors report on a beach renourishment project started in January 1993 in an attempt to reestablish a high tide beach along most of Folly Island. The objectives of this study were:...

The North Black Sea and the Sea of Azov Coasts Under a Possible Greenhouse-Induced Global Sea-Level Rise
The first attempt is presented to compile a map of coastal evolution of the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov under the possible accelerated greenhouse-induced sea-level rise by 1m (medium...

Halloween Wave Transformation Near Virginia Coast
The Halloween Northeaster of October 29-31, 1991 generated a unique severe sea. The storm waves propagated through two wave stations which are 87 km apart. The wave spectra of the storm...

The Magdalen Islands, Gulf of Saint Lawrence
The Magdalen Islands constitute the largest barrier-island system in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. They represent 435 km of coasts at the 1:50 000 scale, two-thirds of which are sandy and...

Calculating Erosion Rates: Using Long-Term Data to Increase Data Confidence
Computer cartographic techniques were used to produce historical shoreline change maps for two study areas: (1) an eight kilometer section of Calvert County, Maryland; and (2) an eight...

Computer Simulation of River Channel Changes at a Bridge Crossing on a Point Bar

Using a Numerical Model to Evaluate Dredging Options

Santa Barbara Harbor Assessment of Shoaling Frequency
The City of Santa Barbara is addressing the recurring problem of shoaling of its harbor entrance channel. The City relies on income generated from harbor businesses that in turn require...

Shoaling and Breaking of Random Wave Trains: Spectral Approaches
We describe recent efforts to develop a model to predict the evolution of the spectra of random ocean waves shoaling and breaking on a natural beach. A model based on the full Euler equations...

Nonlinear Shoaling and Impact of Waves on Coastal Structures
A two-dimensional fully nonlinear potential flow model is used to calculate shoaling of solitary and enoidal waves over a sloping bottom and interaction with submerged or emerged coastal...

Optimal Scheduling of Advanced Maintenance Dredging
This brief article discusses conventional and new procedures for nourishment of beaches taking advantage of recent years' development of more effective equipment of smaller...

Wave Shoaling on Uniform Currents
The purposes of this paper are to investigate the characteristics of waves coexisting with uniform currents on a sloping bottom. The theoretical calculations of the third order approximation...

Debris Removal and Channel Shoaling
Hurricane Hugo was one of the worst storms of the century to strike the east coast of the United States. The storm tracked a northwesterly course approximately 11:30 P.M. on Sep. 21, 1989....

Planning of an Offshore Fishing Port in Shallow Sandy Beach

Monitoring of the 1985/86 Beach Nourishment Project at Bar Beach, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria
Bar Beach, Victoria Island, is Nigeria's foremost leisure beach and has been the site of very active erosion following the completion in 1912 of two stone breakwaters perpendicular...

Development of Shallow Draft Harbor Design Criteria
One of many U.S. Army Corps of Engineer (USACE) missions is the construction and maintenance of shallow-draft coastal ports and harbors. Current practices for shallow-draft harbor design...
