California and Ocean Management: Problems and Opportunities

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...

Coastal Zone Management, National Implementable Plan and Policy Development—A Case Study of Phuket Island
The Thailand Coastal Resources Management Project (CRMP) had been applied to Thailand since 1986 with aim to strengthen the Thai's capabilities in managing an integrated coastal...

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...

Scour Around Cylindrical Piles Due to Wave Motion in the Surf-Zone
The paper discusses the results of experimental tests to study scouring phenomena around cylindrical piles during a sea storm with reference to the modelling of a beach profile in the...

A Zoning Code Revision for Port Development—The Story of East Providence
The City of East Providence evaluated the effectiveness of the City's 30 year old zoning code and revised performance standards in the zoning text in light of possible marine...

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...

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...

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...

Monitoring of a Nearshore Disposal Mound at Silver Strand State Park
The migration of an underwater disposal berm constructed in December 1988 approximately six miles south of the entrance to San Diego Bay is investigated. The berm was composed of medium...

Littoral Environmental Considerations of a Barrier Island in Beach Fill Design: Key Biscayne, Florida
An analysis and understanding of morphodynamic and littoral processes along a coastal shoreline is important in design of a beach fill project. Morphodynamic analysis should include a...

Recession of the Littoral Zone Cliffs of the Bristol Channel, U.K.
A recent investigation of the mass movement modified cliffs along the Bristol Channel coastline has been achieved by utilising ground survey data, historical and contemporary cartographic...

Three-Dimensional Plume Dynamics in the Vadose Zone: PORFLO-3 Modeling of a Defense Waste Leak at Hanford
In 1973, approximately 450 m3 of liquid containing radioactive and chemical wastes leaked from the 241-T-106 single-shell tank into the vadose zone...

Working on the Moon: The Apollo Experience
Work experience gained during the Apollo missions suggests that lunar base productivity can be enhanced through careful attention to suit design, repair capabilities, equipment design...
