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 Richard E Meyer( Book )

8 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 534 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

Sediment distribution, sand resources, and geologic character of the inner continental shelf off Galveston County, Texas by S. Jeffress Williams( )

5 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

About 850 square kilometers (330 square miles) of the Texas inner shelf from High Island to Freeport was surveyed and studied, using high-resolution continuous seismic reflection profiles taken along several hundred kilometers of trackline and 34 long cores, to determine the general geologic character and surface and subbottom sediment distribution. The objective was to assess the resource potential of sand deposits suitable as fill for beach nourishment projects. Pleistocene and older sedimentary deposits underlie the study area at shallow depths, and several prominent erosion surfaces and deeply incised, and subsequently filled, stream channels are evident on the seismic records. The thickness of Holocene sediments is generally less than 3 meters (10 feet), except in channels, and the contact between the Holocene and Pleistocene units is obvious in most cores and shows good correlation with a regional reflector on the seismic profiles. Mud and muddy fine sands predominate in the area; however, very fine to fine sand is present on the shoreface and in several delta shoals. Five sites are identified which contain sand suitable for beach nourishment; two of the sites, a shoal adjacent to Galveston south jetty and an area off San Luis Pass, offer the highest potential. Volumetric estimates indicate that 63 million cubic meters (82 million cubic yards) of sand exists in the five sites. (Author)
The SPM energy flux method for predicting longshore transport rate by Cyril J Galvin( )

4 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report explains in detail the energy flux method in Section 4.532 of the Shore Protection Manual (SPM). Appendix A describes the derivation of four energy flux factors. Appendix B explains how the significant wave height enters these equations. Appendix C identifies the data that led to the prediction of longshore transport rate from the energy flux factor. The importance of the correct formulation of breaker speed, and its effect on estimates of breaker angle are demonstrated. The report describes the steps used to arrive at the energy flux method, but it does not critically analyze those steps. (Author)
An annotated bibliography of seagrasses with emphasis on planting and propagation techniques by Daniel B Knight( )

4 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This bibliography includes abstracts on 145 historic and recently published research reports on seagrasses, with emphasis on Halodule, Ruppia, Thalassia and Zostera. The compilation of reports emphasizes planting and propagation techniques for seagrasses and important environmental parameters for successful transplanting. The bibliography is published to aid coastal engineers and scientists in planning, designing, and transplanting seagrasses to rehabilitate areas affected by coastal engineering projects and to stabilize substrates adjacent to navigation channels.

Movable-bed laboratory experiments comparing radiation stress and energy flux factor as predictors of longshore transport rate by Philip Vitale( )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The results of three-dimensional movable-bed laboratory test are used to empirically relate the longshore sediment transport rate to the radiation stress and the longshore energy flux factor. Both correlate equally well with the longshore transport rate, producing correlation coefficient squared values of approximately 0.70. The surf similarity parameter also shows a strong influence on the longshore transport rate. (Author)

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

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 153 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

Shore stabilization with salt marsh vegetation by Paul L Knutson( Book )

6 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 146 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

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.
