Shoreline Processes and Beach Changes on the Lagoon Shoreline at Fire Island National Seashore, NY, USA
Shoreline processes and beach changes on the lagoon shoreline at Fire Island national seashore, NY, USA are discussed in this paper....

Cumulative Environmental Impacts of Shoreline Stabilization on Puget Sound
Although shore protection structures such as bulkheads and seawalls may provide protection to upland property owners, they bring with them numerous potential adverse environmental effects....

Coastal Erosion Analysis of the Belle Fontaine Area, Jackson County, Mississippi
The Belle Fontaine area contains the only remaining natural beach on the mainland Mississippi shoreline. The fine to medium-grained sand beach is the result of erosion and retreat of the...

Historical Shoreline Analysis of the Mississippi Gulf Coast
Historical shoreline positions of the Mississippi mainland coast and the barrier islands were digitized for four periods of time. USGS T-sheets provided control for the 1850's, 1917, and...

Incremental Influence of Shore Structures Determined Using a Shoreline Change Model
Shore erosion at Ogden Dunes, Indiana, is thought to be caused by shore structures making up the Burns International Harbor complex, located on the southern shore of Lake Michigan. Long-term...

Breakwater Design in the Chesapeake Bay: Dealing with the End Effects
This paper documents various methods for treating the terminal ends of headland breakwater systems. Twelve sites in Chesapeake Bay were selected for study. In selecting design alternatives,...

Assessing Coastal Bluff Erosion Along the Oregon Coast Using Available Materials
This pilot study was initiated by Oregon's Department of Geology and Mineral Industry (DOGAMI) in an effort to determine erosion rates applicable to the coastal bluffs of Oregon's shoreline....

Shoreline Erosional/Depositional Patterns in Oman
This paper presents a brief synopsis of the physical setting and geomorphology of the Oman coast, emphasizing the areas with the most dramatic erosional/depositional eyeless. Eighty-three...

Wave-Induced Erosion on a Tidal Marsh Shoreline in Corte Madera Bay
One of the primary factors controlling the formation and configuration of a shoreline is the interaction of waves with the shore. A monitoring program was set up at the Corte Madera Ecological...
