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....

Modelling of Cross-Shore Transport
The validity of cross-shore sediment transport modelling in terms of time-averaged velocities and concentrations has been investigated....

Controlling Parameters on Littoral Transport and Coastline Development
An extension to the one-line approach to coastline development modelling is presented in the light of the major parameters influencing the longshore sediment transport processes. The model...
