  • Water level response in back-barrier bays unchanged following Hurricane Sandy 

    Aretxabaleta, Alfredo L.; Butman, Bradford; Ganju, Neil K. (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-05-02)
    On 28–30 October 2012, Hurricane Sandy caused severe flooding along portions of the northeast coast of the United States and cut new inlets across barrier islands in New Jersey and New York. About 30% of the 20 highest ...
  • Wave- and tidally-driven flow and sediment flux across a fringing coral reef : southern Molokai, Hawaii 

    Storlazzi, Curt D.; Ogston, Andrea S.; Bothner, Michael H.; Field, Michael E.; Presto, M. K. (Elsevier B.V., 2004-07-08)
    The fringing coral reef off the south coast of Molokai, Hawaii is currently being studied as part of a US Geological Survey (USGS) multi-disciplinary project that focuses on geologic and oceanographic processes that affect ...
  • Wave-current interaction in Willapa Bay 

    Olabarrieta, Maitane; Warner, John C.; Kumar, Nirnimesh (American Geophysical Union, 2011-12-13)
    This paper describes the importance of wave-current interaction in an inlet-estuary system. The three-dimensional, fully coupled, Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere-Wave-Sediment Transport (COAWST) modeling system was applied in ...
  • A wetting and drying scheme for ROMS 

    Warner, John C.; Defne, Zafer; Haas, Kevin A.; Arango, Hernan G. (Elsevier B.V., 2013-05-24)
    The processes of wetting and drying have many important physical and biological impacts on shallow water systems. Inundation and dewatering effects on coastal mud flats and beaches occur on various time scales ranging from ...
  • Widespread gas hydrate instability on the upper U.S. Beaufort margin 

    Phrampus, Benjamin J.; Hornbach, Matthew J.; Ruppel, Carolyn D.; Hart, Patrick E. (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-12-09)
    The most climate-sensitive methane hydrate deposits occur on upper continental slopes at depths close to the minimum pressure and maximum temperature for gas hydrate stability. At these water depths, small perturbations ...
