    Hurricane impacts on the Caribbean coastal/marine environment : using scientific assessment to plan for the future
    (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-09) Aubrey, David G. ; Giese, Graham S. ; Burdick, D. M. ; Agardy, M. T. ; Haney, J. Christopher ; Gable, F. J.
    The passage of Hurricane Hugo through the eastern Caribbean provided a unique opportunity for multidisciplinary study of (1) the effects of severe storms on tropical coastal and marine ecosystems, and (2) the physical and biological responses of those ecosystems to intense storm-induced changes. In addition to its direct value as basic science, this study can be used to facilitate development of improved coastal and marine resource management capabilities.

    Development, characteristics, and effects of the new Chatham Harbor inlet
    (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-06) Giese, Graham S. ; Aubrey, David G. ; Liu, James T.
    A new tidal inlet into Chatham Harbor, Massachusetts, has developed from a breach in the barrier beach, Nauset Beach, that forms the outer shoreline of southeastern Cape Cod. Increased tidal range and wave energy resulting from the new inlet produced acute coastal erosion and channel shoaling within Chatham Harbor, with significant impacts on the fishing and boating industries, and on private and public propeny and interests. Study results are consistent with the hypothesis that the Nauset-Monomoy barrier beach system undergoes a long-term cycle of geomorphological change, and that a new cycle was initiated with the formation of this new inlet. Based on this new understanding, future changes in the system can be foreseen and provided to coastal resource managers.
