A Proposed Revised State Zoning Enabling Act

Dredged Material Placement Techniques—A Review of Its Past, Present and Future
Maintenance of ports and harbors requires considerable amount of dredging and this makes studies on dredged material disposal and placement technique particularly important. This paper...

Regulating Visual Quality of the California Coastline

Linking CZM With Local Planning and Zoning, Examples of Successful Harbor Management Planning
In September, 1988, the Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council initiated the Rhode Island Harbors Management Project. This project calls for Rhode Island municipalities to establish...

Importance of the Surf Zone of Exposed Sandy Beaches for the Development of Juvenile Trachinotus (Pisces, Carangidae)
Sandy beaches dominate most of the tropical and temperate coastlines. Studies of nearshore ichthyofauna, in different regions of the world, have revealed the frequent occurrence of juvenile...

Multiple Use Ocean Management in the U.S.: Toward a New Conceptual Framework
Problems with the sectorally based, largely single-purpose approach to the management of ocean resources and ocean space in the United States have been amply documented in recent years....

Evidence for Eustatic Influence on Cenozoic Sedimentation of Coastal Washington and Oregon
Comparison of the absolute age boundaries of the West Coast biozonation with the Cenozoic global cycle chart indicates that 12 of the 15 zonal boundaries coincide with regressive sequence...

Rip Currents: Human Impact and Forecastibility
Annually, a large number of people in the United States drown in the surf zone. This study determines the number of surf drownings each year, mainly in Dade and Broward counties of southeast...

Effect of Long Waves to Local Sediment Transport Rate
When irregular waves travel to the shoreline, long wave component becomes important in the surf zone. In the surf zone, sands are transported by both wave motion and turbulence due to...

Turbulence Modelling of Suspended Sediment in the Surf Zone
A computational model is developed for the prediction of the wave period averaged turbulence structure under a breaking wave. The principal forcing function for the model is the generation...

Effects of Fluid Accelerations on Sediment Transport in Surf Zones
Two hydraulic model tests were run in a wave flume using irregular waves to obtain detailed data on the cross-shore variations of the pressure gradient on a 1:20 smooth, impermeable slope....

Cross-Shore Sediment Transport Under Irregular Waves in Surf Zones
A numerical model is proposed to predict the free surface elevation and depth-averaged velocity in the surf and swash zones for normally incident random waves. Comparison of the numerical...

Transformation of Random Breaking Waves and Its Empirical Numerical Modeling Considering Surf Beat
The free surface characteristics of random waves in the shoaling and surf zones on a beach of uniform slope were examined experimentally. The effect of incident wave grouping was found...

Observations of a Tidal Inlet on a Shingle Beach
An observation and measurement program was undertaken at Batiquitos Lagoon, San Diego County, California to better understand the paths and rates of shingle movement in the littoral zone....

Net Late Holocene Emergence Despite Earthquake-Induced Submergence, South-Central Chile
Intertidal deposits show net late Holocene emergence along the Pacific coast near Maullin and Carelmapu, Chile (latitude 41.6°-41.7°S). The maximum amount of net emergence is about 1 m...

Sorting Characteristics of Tidal Inlets
An hypothesis is presented as follows: Littoral processes at a tidal inlet remove a disproportionately higher quantity of fine grain sediment than coarse grain sediment from the littoral...

Regional Beach Sand Volumes of the Pacific Northwest, USA
Eight small littoral cells ranging from 5-60 km in length have been surveyed by beach profiling and seismic refraction to establish active beach sand volumes in the Pacific Northwest region....

The Santa Cruz Littoral Cell: Difficulties in Quantifying a Coastal Sediment Budget
Beach compartments or littoral cells form the framework for our understanding of the sources, transport, sinks, and storage of sand in the nearshore zone. In general, along the California...

Marina Parking Study
This marina parking study establishes a rationale for determining parking demand at marinas on the north shore of Long Island Sound in Connecticut and New York. The study was performed...

Infragravity Driven Suspended Sediment Transport in the Swash, Inner and Outer-Surf Zone
Nearbed suspended sediment concentration and velocity measurements from 3 field sites in the mid-outer surf zone (low energy), inner surf zone (high energy) and swash (high energy) are...
