Wave Forces: Data Analysis and Engineering Calculation Method

Characterizing the Pathways and Characteristics of Nutrients Discharging from Ground-Water to Surface Water
Any investigation of surface-water quality for a lake or pond requires accurate estimates of the contributing contaminant or nutrient loads. In many cases, inflow from the adjacent ground...

Hydrochemical Modeling of Water Quality in a Ground and Surface Water System within a Semi-Urban Watershed

Berm Breakwaters—Design, Construction and Monitoring
The philosophy of the fieldwork of Berm breakwaters was applied in Iceland. A few case histories were described with emphasis on quarry investigations, design, construction and monitoring....

Montioring and Modeling of Tandem Breakwater System at Hammond, IN
A tandem breakwater system was constructed in 1989-90 to provide protection for a large marina at Hammond, IN, at the south end of Lake Michigan. A five year monitoring program (1993-98),...

Advances in Buoy Technology for Wind/Wave Data Collection and Analysis
Considerable advances have been made recently to reduce the cost of gathering meteorological and oceanographic data from coastal waters, especially for meteorological and oceanographic...

St. George Habor—Berm Breakwater Construction Considerations
During the period 1984-1987 three berm breakwaters with a total length of approximately 800 meters were constructed at St. George Harbor on St. George Island in the Pribil of Chain of...

Calibration of Water-Velocity Meters
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), as part of its responsibility to appraise the quantity of water resources in the United States, maintains facilities for the calibration of water-velocity...
