Shoreline Change Analysis Case Study: The Bethany Beach Groin Field

Keys to High-Accuracy Mapping of Shoreline Changes
For many years it has been difficult to overlay maps and aerial photographs with different scales and publication dates using conventional techniques. Large processing errors also made...

Morphodynamics of the Isles Dernieres Barrier Shoreline, Louisiana: 1984–1989
An aerial videotape mapping system was used to monitor spatial and temporal variability of the coastal morphology along the Isles Dernieres barrier shoreline. Between 1984 and 1989, nine...

Late Quaternary (Pre-Holocene) Coastal Systems of New Jersey
The coastline and the area adjacent to the present shoreline of New Jersey has not been explored as intensely as the same region of neighboring states for pre-Holocene high sea level stillstands....

The Stratigraphic Record of Oxygen Isotope Stage 5 on the Maryland Inner Shelf
Present knowledge of Holocene transgressive coastal/shelf systems, while extensive, cannot directly address the effects and consequences of an extended period of relatively high sea levels...

Historical Morphologic Evolution and Sedimentation at Barataria Pass, Louisiana
Barataria Pass, Louisiana, one of the most commercially important tidal inlets in the Gulf of Mexico, has undergone several stages of development since 1840. The shore-parallel growth...

Computer Simulation Modeling of Ebb-Tidal Deltas
An ebb-tidal delta simulation model has been developed incorporating gross features of delta and channel morphologies which can be measured from vertical aerial photographs. Delta and...

Initial Shoreline Response at the Presque Isle Erosion Control Project
Construction of the Presque Isle Shoreline Erosion Control Project in Lake Erie at Erie, PA began October 1989 and consists of fifty-eight offshore segmented breakwaters with beachfill....

Rehabilitation of the South Jetty-Ocean City, Maryland
The south jetty at Ocean City, Maryland was rebuilt in 1985 to reduce the frequent shoaling in Ocean City Inlet. The project consists of a new jetty offset 30 feet south of the existing...

Comparison of Shoreline Change Obtained with Physical and Numerical Models
This paper describes a study performed to compare numerical simulations of shoreline response to coastal structures to the response measured in a large wave basin. Two cases are modeled...

The Interaction of Seawalls and Beaches: Four Years of Field Monitoring, Monterey Bay, California
Coastal protection structures have historically been the most common approach to dealing with the problem of shoreline erosion in the United States. Three potential impacts of these structures...

Influence of Water-Level Variation on the Performance of Great Lakes Beach Nourishments
In an effort to evaluate the influence of Great Lakes water level change on beach nourishment profile adjustment, an extensive ten year monitoring study was conducted in southern Lake...

Integrated Photogrammetric and Geophysical Monitoring of Shoreline Instability in Littoral Cells in the Pacific Northwest, USA
Several factors have recently focused on the attention of government agencies, academic researchers, and the general public on coastal erosion and beach resource management in the Pacific...

Coastal Process Study on Beacon Shoreline
A sediment budget was developed for the Santa Barbara and Ventura County shoreline in Southern California as part of an overall coastal planning effort. The budget was analyzed primarily...

Tidal Flooding Analysis, San Francisco Bay
Many leveed areas adjacent to San Francisco Bay are potentially subject to tidal flooding. In response to this concern, Congress authorized the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to conduct...

North Point Marina — A Case Study
North Point Marina is a full service, 1493 boat marina constructed by the State of Illinois on the shoreline of Lake Michigan to serve boaters from northeastern Illinois. Because of its...

Working Breakwaters
Along the Virginia portion of the Chesapeake Bay, shoreline erosion has erased about 40,000 acres of land since 1850. Now a series of headland breakwater systems stems erosion up and down...

Slips Ahoy
Klancnik discusses the markets for marina construction in the 1990s. The past decade saw a boom in the boating industry and in the design and construction of marinas. The market will remain...
