Sandbar Formation in Side-Diversion Channels
Prediction of sandbar formation in side-diversion channels is desirable in a wide range of river engineering problems. However, the mechanism by which they form is still not well understood...

Mississippi-Alabama: Natural and Man-Made Shores—A Study in Contrasts
Quaternary formations essentially define the present configuration of the Alabama-Mississippi coast. As the result of the coast's tectonic history, they are much less widespread and thinner...

Long-Term Shoreline Change of the Chandeleur Islands Barrier System, Louisiana: 1855 to 1989
The Chandeleur Islands are the largest barrier island system along the Mississippi River delta plain, and are characterized by low-profile, washover-dominated barriers that are rapidly...

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...

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...

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...

Parameterization of Turbulence for Three-Dimensional Circulation Modeling
Estuarine circulation are driven by the actions of tide, wind, and density gradients associated with saline ocean water and fresh riverine water, and are also influenced by the complex...

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...

Effect of Jetty Configuration on Wave Conditions and Dredge Quantities at Green Harbor, MA

Design and Construction of Shinnecock Inlet, New York
Shinnecock Inlet is the easternmost of six coastal inlet which bracket the barrier island on the south shore of Long Island, New York. Through recent history, Shinnecock Inlet has exhibited...

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...
