Specific Features of Shoreline Development in Sochi Region and Engineering Methods of Coast Protection
A coast segment from Tuapse City to the Psou River, 113 km long, is extended in this paper. Geological description of the coast has been made, and approximate values of the abrasion rate...

The Southern North Sea Functional Uses and Institutional Arrangements
The southern North Sea is bordered by the United Kingdom, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany and Denmark. The North Sea basin and its adjacent shorelines are intensively used. Managements...

Shoreline Management of Eastern England
This paper gives a perspective on the length of coastline falling within the boundary of the National Rivers Authority, Anglian Region (NRA) in respect of the shoreline management carried...

Coastal Erosion in Senegal—The Case of Rufisque
Studies conducted in Rufisque (Senegal) have contributed to the understanding of coastal erosion processes. The historical evolution of the coastline between 1959 and 1980 shows different...

Shoreline Erosion Along the East Coast of Ghana
Coastal erosion along the east coast of Ghana has been persistent within the Keta area since the beginning of the century and severe in the immediate fringes of the west of the Volta Estuary...

Shoreline Management Along the Cohesive Shorelines of the Great Lakes
The primary focus of Shoreline Management Plans (SMPs) is minimizing the risks to life and property due to flood and erosion hazards. Various approaches are utilized to minimize these...

Meeting Information and Communication Needs in Regional Coastal Zone Management: Case Studies from the Great Lakes
Recent initiatives in regional coastal management within the Ontario Great Lakes basin, such as the preparation of Shoreline Management Plans by Ontario Conservation Authorities, background...

Stability of Rock Armour Under Random Wave Attack: Performance of Non-Standard Rock Shapes and Gradings
Quarried rock is frequently used to protect coastal and shoreline structures against wave attack. Armour rock specifications generally exclude rock that is rounded or tabular, and gradings...

The Assessment of Armourstone for Shoreline Protection
To protect shorelines from erosion, Ontario Hydro is using armourstone at various Generating Stations along the perimeter of the Great Lakes. Armourstone is carefully evaluated prior to...

Short Beach Nourishment Fill Performance on an Irregular Coatline
A review of the beach nourishment fill performance literature reveals that the accepted and proven theories of beach fill performance can be categorized as either one-line models or analytic...

Gravel Equilibrium Beach Design for Arresting Shore Erosion at Flathead Lake, Montana
Erosion of the north shore of Flathead Lake, Montana, is caused by summer wind waves generated along a 22-mile fetch. The preferred method for arresting erosion there is a beach composed...

An Overview of Segmented Offshore/Headland Breakwater Projects Constructed by the Buffalo District
Since 1977 the Buffalo District has constructed three segmented offshore breakwater projects and currently has one under construction. In addition, the District has recently completed...

Chesapeake Bay Field Modeling and Monitoring Projects
'Traditional' erosion control measures often do not meet the corps of Engineers' requirement for economic justification. The costs of these measures are much greater than the benefits...

Coastal Processes and Engineering on a Micronesian Fringing Reef
In 1980, portions of the fringing reef flat protecting the village of Tafunsak, Federated States of Micronesia, were dredged to provide fill material for an airport runway access road....

Development of Detached Breakwater Design Criteria Using a Shoreline Response Model
An evaluation of beach response to detached breakwaters was conducted using the numerical shoreline response model GENESIS. Functional design parameters such as structure length, gap distance,...

Lagrangian Transport Simulation Using Video Images to Store and Retrieve Parameters
A new technique based on Video Images for Storing and Retrieving parameters (VISR) and its application to model pollutant transport using the Lagrangian discrete parcel method is presented....

Design of Marina Replacement Facilities
A majority of the waterfront design projects within the State of California are for the replacement of existing facilities since the densely populated shoreline areas are already heavily...

Current Developments of the U.S. Great Lakes Shoreline GIS
The Computer Mapping Center of the Detroit District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), in cooperation with the State of Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR), Land and Water...
