Evaluation of Airborne Video Imagery for Distinguishing Intertidal Oyster Reefs
We evaluated the effectiveness of airborne video imagery in distinguishing and mapping oyster (Crassostrea virginica) reefs in Aransas Bay on the southern Texas gulf coast. Imagery obtained...

Textural Features of Sediments and TEmporal Evolution of the Littoral Between Capo Passero and Capo Scalambri (South East Sicily): An Attempt at Automatic Zoning
The southern coast of Sicily extends for about 230 km and is characterized by five physiographic units, the first of which, from Capo Passero to Capo Scalambri, is made up of a roughly...

Project Performance: Ocean City, Maryland Beach Nourishment
Detailed monitoring of the performance of a two-phase beach nourishment project has provided valuable information on beach fill behavior and long-term response of a beach fill to prevailing...

Beach Enhancement Through Nourishment and Compartmentalization: The Recent History of Santa Monica Bay
During the past half-century, the beaches in the central and southern portions of Santa Monica Bay have been significantly enhanced by a combination of artificial nourishment and structural...

Natural Cleaning Proficiency as a Coastal Macrodescriptor
The hypothesis that coastal susceptibility to pollution increases at sublittoral sites where natural cleaning proficiency (NCP) is exceeded was tested comparing values of the pollution...

Morphological Trends of the Belgian Coast Shown by 10 Years of Remote-Sensing Based Surveying
The morphological evolution of foreshore, backshore, and adjoining dunes of the entire Belgian coast is surveyed by means of aerial remote sensing on a yearly basis since 1983. The evolution...

Seasonal Morphological Evolution of Beach Profiles in Tropical Zone
A follow-up of the morphological evolution of Cote d'Ivoire Atlantic littoral for two yeas, from nine beach profiles between Grand-Bassam and Jacqueville showed a seasonal evolution of...

Application of Vadose Zone Flow and Transport Models
This paper summarizes application of two subsurface flow and transport models at Superfund sites, and evaluation of a number of other unsaturated zone models. The screening level models...

In Situ Bioremediation Via Horizontal Wells
The U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Technology Development, has been sponsoring full-scale environmental restoration technology demonstrations for the past 3 years. The Savannah River...

Surface Flows Over Intertidal Marshes
A marsh-flow measuring device has been designed to quantify the flow across the marsh surface. The fluorometric technique by tracking the visible substance (Rhodamine red dye) applied...
