Species profiles : life histories and environmental requirements of coastal fishes and invertebrates (Pacific Northwest) by Dennis R Lassuy( Book )

17 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Species profiles are literature summaries of the taxonomy, morphology, distribution, life history, ecological role, and environmental requirements of coastal aquatic species. They are prepared to assist coastal managers, engineers, and biologists in the gathering of information pertinent to coastal development activities. The English sole is a major contributor to Pacific Northwest trawl fisheries and is used extensively in the fillet-of-sole trade. Spawning is usually most intense during winter, but occurs in all seasons. Temperature conditions before spawning and during the egg and larval stages are critical to subsequent year-class strength. Hatching success is apparently greatest at salinities and temperatures of 25-28 ppt and 8-9 C. Postlarvae settle in open-coast and estuarine areas. Densities of rearing juveniles are highest in lower estuaries. Growth may be inhibited at temperatures above 17.5 C. Emigration from nursery areas to deeper, sand-bottomed offshore areas occurs during late summer and fall. Juveniles and adults feed on a wide variety of benthic invertebrates. Female English sole grow faster and mature later (3-4 years) than males (2-3 years). Females are more susceptible to capture in the multi-species trawl fisheries that typify Pacific Northwest ground fishing. Keywords: Parophrys vetulus. (aw)
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 493 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

Stability of stone-and dolos-armored, rubble-mound breakwater trunks subjected to breaking waves with no overtopping by Robert D Carver( Book )

10 editions published between 1983 and 1989 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of the investigation herein was to obtain design information for stone and dolos armor used on breakwater heads and subjected to nonbreaking waves. More specifically, it was desired to determine the minimum weight of individual armor units (with given specific weights) required for stability as a function of (a) Type of armor unit; (b) Sea-side slope of the structure; (c) Angle of wave attack; (d) Wave period; (e) Wave height; Based on tests and results described herein, in which stone and dolos armor are used on conical breakwater heads and subjected to nonbreaking waves with angles of wave attack of 0, 45, 90, and 135 deg, it is concluded that: (a) The longer wave periods (2.00 and 2.75 sec) generally produce the lower stabilities; (b) Angles of wave attack of 45 and 90 deg are the most critical; (c) Flattening the slope from 1V on 1.5H to 1V on 2H does not improve stability of the stone armor

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 146 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 139 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.

Wave transmission characteristics of various floating and bottom-fixed rubber-tire breakwaters in shallow water experimental model investigation by Dennis G Markle( Book )

4 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A two-dimensional experimental model investigation was conducted at a scale of 1:4, model:prototype, to determine and compare the wave transmission characteristics of various floating and bottom-fixed, rubber-tire breakwater concepts when placed over or on a mild bottom slope in shallow water and exposed to nonbreaking and breaking waves. Wave transmission characteristics of each concept as it corresponds to incident wave height, wave period, water depth, wave steepness, relative wave height, and relative depth are presented in both graphical and tabular form. The concepts are ranked from the best to worst relative to the wave protection they appear to provide in a shallow-water wave environment. Keywords: Bottom fixed, Breakwaters, Floating, Model tests, Rubber tire, Water waves, Wave transmission

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

Weir sand-bypassing systems by J. Richard Weggel( Book )

6 editions published between 1981 and 1983 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents a method for designing weir sand-bypassing systems. Jetties are generally shore-normal structures built at tidal inlets to fix the location of the inlet and associated navigation channel. In a weir-jetty system one or both jetties is constructed with a low weir section across which sediment can move into a deposition basin. The sediment caught in the excavated deposition basin is periodically dredged and bypassed to downdrift beaches to preclude serious erosion of those beaches. The design of a weir bypassing system requires knowledge of the wave and sand transport conditions at a site and involves locating and proportioning the jetties, weir section, deposition basin, and navigation channel, as well as selecting and designing the desired updrift and downdrift beach configuration. Methods of data analysis and interpretation for weir-system design are presented along with guidance on proportioning the various components of a weir bypassing system
