Predictions of Shoaling Rates for a New Harbor in Puget Sound, Washington
Physical and numerical modeling methods were used to predict shoaling rates in the proposed Naval Station Puget Sound, Washington. A simple analytical model (SILTHAR), based on the premise...

Sanctuaries for Lake Trout in the Great Lakes
Three lake trout sanctuaries have been established in Lake Michigan: the Fox Island Sanctuary of 121,500 ha, in the Chippewa-Ottawa Treaty fishing zone in the northern region of the lake;...

Numerical Modeling of the Coastal Current Regime at Yaquina Bay, Oregon
The application of a family of hydrodynamic numerical models for simulating tidal and wave-induced currents at Yaquina Bay, Oregon, is described. An overview of four numerical models is...

Shoal Creek Flood Control Plan Austin, Texas
Following the devastating 1981 Memorial Day flood, a comprehensive and innovative flood control plan was developed and implemented for Austin's Shoal Creek Watershed. The...

Analytical and Empirical Methods for Predicting Channel Shoaling
Many techniques have been used in the past to predict the effects of channel enlargement on channel shoaling. These range from rule-of-thumb predictions to elaborate physical model investigations....

The Sand Bar Hydroelectric Project: A Case History
The Sand Bar project's major features include a reinforced concrete intake structure; 3. 5 miles of twelve foot diameter hard rock tunnel; a reinforced concrete powerhouse...

Managing Shoreline Changes in the Presence of Nearshore Shoal Migration and Attachment
The purpose of this paper is to describe these events in detail and illustrate the need for better understanding of erosion/deposition patterns around tidal inlets. Periodic beach surveys...

Ebb-Tidal Deltas and Barrier Island Morphology
Offshore depositional features such as ebb-tidal deltas may have significant and perhaps controlling influence on barrier island morphology. These features serve three primary functions....

Nonlinear Deformation and Bispectral Change of Random Gravity Waves on Sloping Bed
A WKB-perturbation method is applied to the deformation of random gravity waves in water of slowly varying depth. In the present analysis, a spectral representation of WKB-type is assumed...

Wave Beach Interaction
This paper gives a derivation of the modification factors of wave amplitudes due to the effect of pure shoaling, friction, percolation and their combined effect. The resulting expressions...

Prediction of Shoaling in Estuarial Channels: A Microcomputer Application
Shoaling rates at three predominant areas of sedimentation in the Hooghly River estuary, India, have been predicted using a sediment transport model run on an IBM compatible microcomputer....
