Guidelines for vegetative erosion control on wave-impacted coastal dredged material sites by Paul L Knutson( Book )

4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides guidelines for the evaluation of vegetative stabilization alternatives for dredged material disposal areas using salt marsh wetland plants. The guidelines provide a methodology for classifying dredged material shorelines with respect to wave energy (low, moderate, or high energy sites) and specify a vegetative stabilization strategy (standard planting techniques, root-anchored techniques, or wave protection structures) for each energy regime. Such guidelines provide dredged material planners and operations personnel the means to use dredged material for combined beneficial uses of wetlands creation, habitat development, and erosion control. The report also presents two case studies of salt marsh creation on dredged material sites located in North Carolina along the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway and in Texas along the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway near Galveston. These studies provide guidelines for creating salt marsh on moderate- to high-energy sites exposed to both ship and wind generated waves
Shoreline plant establishment and use of a wave-stilling device by J. W Webb( Book )

The establishment and development of smooth cordgrass transplants on a 2-percent slope behind a wave-stilling device constructed of two tiers of tires strung on a cable were monitored along the north shore of East Bay in Texas. Two previous plantings on the sloped area, the first without wave protection and the second behind one tier of tires, were unsuccessful. After a second tier of tires was placed on top of the original tier, enough protection was provided from waves to allow successful planting. A 0.15-meter buildup of sediment occurred directly behind the barrier. Smooth cordgrass survival was approximately 50 percent and over 100 stems per meter squared were counted in some areas 1 year after planting. Density and height of smooth cordgrass increased with increasing hours of inudation. Rabbits apparently caused enough damage to plants outside a rabbit-proof fence that significant differences in density between fenced and unfenced areas occurred. With adequate wave protection, smooth cordgrass can be established below MHW in estuarine areas. Gulf cordgrass, marshhay cordgrass, and saltgrass can be used above MHW for shoreline protection
Vegetation establishment and shoreline stabilization : Galveston Bay, Texas by J. W Webb( Book )

4 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adaptation of species for shoreline stabilization, use of wave-stilling devices, and effects of fertilizers were studies along the north shore of East Bay in Texas. Water salinity varied throughout the study with rainfall and evaporation but never exceeded 18,500 parts per million. Soil texture was classified as a loam or clay-loam. Soil pH, salinity, and cation concentrations fluctuated with bay water salinity, rainfall, evaporation, and location in relation to tidal zones. Giant reed and gulf cordgrass were best adapted for dry areas. Smooth cordgrass was the species best adapted in areas exposed to tidal action. The survival and growth of this species appeared essential in stabilizing the eroding upper Texas coast bay shoreline. Wave-stilling devices of hay bales were not able to withstand high-wave energy. Tires on cables attached to posts lost their effectiveness as they sank into the mud. Nevertheless, smooth cordgrass survival was significantly greater behind these devices. Mechanical planting behind a tractor was accomplished at low tides. Nitrogen and phosphorus fertilizers did not significantly improve survival or reproduction in transplanted areas, but were significant in natural smooth cordgrass stands for reproduction and herbage production.

Establishment of vegetation for shoreline stabilization in Galveston Bay by J. D Dodd( Book )

4 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of the study was to determine which resident species of plants adapted to saline conditions can be used to control shore erosion in bays or estuaries. Water salinity and soil physical and chemical characteristics were determined at the experimental planting sites at East Bay near Galveston, Texas. The soil was loam or clay-loam texture and was structurally unstable and subject to wave erosion. Soil salinity varied from 2,500 to more than 12,000 parts per million and water salinity from below 2,500 to 18,000 parts per million. Twelve plant species were selected for evaluation of their ability to stabilize the shoreline

Habitat availability and utilization by benthos and nekton in Hall's Lake and West Galveston Bay by Thomas Joseph Minello( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Salt marsh habitats along the shoreline of Hall's Lake are threatened by wave erosion, but the reconstruction of barrier islands to reduce this erosion will modify or destroy nonvegetated habitats in West Bay. In order to provide information on the relative value of these estuarine habitats for fishery species, we identified the habitats present and sampled vegetation, sediments, and benthic and nektonic organisms in May 1990. In comparison with nonvegetated bottom, Spartina alterniflora marshes had higher sediment organic content and densities of infaunal crustacea, macrocrustacea (brown shrimp, grass shrimp, and blue crabs), and pinfish. Nonvegetated sites had greater numbers of forage fish such as anchovies. Both trawls and drop samples were used to sample nonvegetated bottom, and there appeared to be little difference among the nonvegetated sites. Mean densities of animals collected in trawls, however, were less than 50% of densites measured with the drop sampler. The value of salt marsh habitats for estuarine animals varied, and within Hall's Lake there was a significant correlation between marsh elevation and density of most macrofauna. In addition, densities of brown shrimp and pinfish were significantly greater in the well-established marshes of Hall's Lake compared with the narrow intermittent marsh present along the West Bay shoreline. Conclusions on relative habitat value based on samples collected at one point in time can be misleading, but data from historical samples, collected in the Hall's Lake marsh, suggest that densities of macrofauna observed in our study are not anomalous. In conjunction with other published data on habitat value in Galveston Bay, our results indicate that for most crustacea the Hall's Lake marshes are more valuable than the other habitats examined. The relative value of the habitats for fishes was highly dependent upon the species. A survey of the West Bay shoreline indicated that valuable salt marsh habitats could be established on created barrier islands if direction of exposure and shoreline slope were controlled

Establishment of vegetation for shoreline stabilization in Galveston Bay, Texas by J. W Webb( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adaptation of species for shoreline stabilization; use of wave-stilling devices; effects of fertilizers, water salinity, tidal fluctuations, and selected soil characteristics on plant establishment and growth were studied along the north shore of East Bay at Galveston, Texas. Water salinity varied throughout the study with rainfall and evaporation, but never exceeded 18,500 ppm. Soil texture was classified as a loam or clay-loam. Soil pH, salinity, and cation concentrations fluctuated with bay water salinity, rainfall, evaporation, and location in relation to tidal zones. Initial transplantation of plants was accomplished by hand. Subsequently, a technique for mechanical planting of plant tillers was developed and used at low tide. Planting with the use of the mechanical device was accomplished behind wave-stilling devices Wave-stilling devices were constructed of hay bales wrapped in chicken-wire netting and held in place by metal posts. Fourteen-gage welded mesh wire was substituted for chicken-wire in a later attempt with hay bales. Tires on cables held in place by metal posts also were tried as wave-stilling devices. Wave-stilling devices constructed of hay bales and 14- gage welded mesh wire or chicken wire did not withstand high-wave energies. Tires on cables attached to posts lost their effectiveness as they sank into the bay bottom
