Waves on beaches and resulting sediment transport; proceedings of an advanced seminar conducted by the Mathematics Research Center, the University of Wisconsin, and the Coastal Engineering Research Center, U.S. Army, at Madison October 11-13, 1971 by R. E Meyer( Book )

5 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Waves on Beaches and Resulting Sediment Transport documents the proceedings of an Advanced Seminar held in October, 1971, aiming to offer a coherent, interdisciplinary view of the state of physical research in coastal oceanography and the direction in which this subject is moving. The articles range from wave refraction to littoral erosion, and the authors from geologists to mathematicians. The book opens with a study on the characteristics of wave records in the coastal zone. This is followed by separate chapters on sediment transport in beaches; equations for water waves; small-amplitude nor

Dune building and stabilization with vegetation by W. W Woodhouse( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first comprehensive report on dune building and stabilization in the United States. The practical information on methods and dune plants is the result of more than 20 years of experimentation in coastal areas from the mouth of the Columbia River in Oregon through southern California and the Gulf of Mexico to Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The use of fences and vegetation for dune creation is discussed, and the labor and material requirements for dune creation and sand stabilization projects are summarized. The major plants suitable for dune building, their propagation and planting requirements, and the stabilization of dunes by various means such as matting, fences, and vegetation, are given for the major coastal regions of the contiguous United States."--Abstract

Building salt marshes along the coasts of the continental United States by W. W Woodhouse( Book )

2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first comprehensive report on coastal marsh creation in the United States. It provides potential users with an analysis and interpretation of the available information on this subject. The role of marshes, the feasibility of marsh creation, and the effects of elevation, salinity, slope, exposure, and soils on marsh establishment are discussed. Plants suitable for marsh building are described by the major regions. Plant propagation, planting, fertilization, and management of the major plants are discussed. Labor and material requirements for marsh creation are summarized. Keywords: Coastal engineering; Gulf coast; Planting; East Coast; West Coast; Grasses; Wetland plants; Transplantation; Sediment accumulation; Marsh soils; Florida; Marsh building; Marsh vegetation; Stabilization.

Two-dimensional tests of wave transmission and reflection characteristics of laboratory breakwaters by William N Seelig( Book )

5 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Monochromatic and irregular wave transmission and reflection measurements were made for various subaerial and submerged breakwater cross sections. These two-dimensional laboratory tests included smooth impermeable breakwaters, rubble-mound breakwaters, and breakwaters armored with dolos unit. Wave transmission by overtopping was found to be related to breakwater freeboard wave runup, and breakwater crest width; a method of estimating transmission by overtopping coefficients is presented. The Madsen and White (1976) numerical procedure was found to be an important tool for predicting the amount of transmission through permeable breakwaters. Suggested procedures for estimating transmission coefficients have been incorporated into the computer programs OVER and MADSEN (included as appendixes) and these programs may be used to predict wave transmission coefficients for nonbreaking, breaking, monochromatic, and irregular wave conditions.

Small-craft harbors : design, construction, and operation by James Dunham( Book )

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analytical data and design standards and procedures are presented for use in the development of small-craft harbors and launching facilities under a wide variety of conditions applicable to a broad spectrum of geographic locations. Environmental impact and governmental control aspects are discussed. Procedures for determining project feasibility and possible sources of governmental assistance are presented. Harbor operations and administration are reviewed. Several case histories of harbors are included. (Author)
Shore stabilization with salt marsh vegetation by Paul L Knutson( Book )

5 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is published to provide engineers and scientists with guidelines on using coastal marsh vegetation as a shore erosion control measure in coastal regions of the United States. This erosion control alternatives is suitable for relatively sheltered shorelines such as those found on bays, sounds, and estuaries. For various reasons this alternative has not been found to be effective in the Great Lakes, Alaska, or Hawaii. Criteria are provided on (1) determining site suitability, (2) selecting plant materials, (3) planting procedures and specifications, (4) estimating project costs, and (5) assessing impact

Beach and nearshore survey data : 1985-1991 CERC Field Research Facility by Guan-Hong Lee( Book )

6 editions published between 1987 and 1993 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents 4 years of highly accurate, approximately biweekly surveys of four selected beach profiles collected at the USAEWES, CERC's Field Research Facility (FRF) in Duck, North Carolina. These data are unique because they cover the most active region of the nearshore, from the dune out to a depth where net bottom changes appear to be negligible, and were collected coincident with detailed measurements of waves and water levels. The data were collected between 1981 and 1984 using the FRF's CRAB, A 10-m-tall motorized tripod, which, combined with an electronic 'total station' surveying instrument, is capable of accuracies of a few centimeters in both elevation and position. The report discusses the data-collection methods, the sources of errors and data editing procedures, and a brief summary of the actual profile data. Appendices contain the listings and plots of the survey data along with the tables and plots of the wave and water level data. Keywords: Beach profiles; Ocean waves; Inshore areas
