  • Introduction to special section on The U.S. IOOS Coastal and Ocean Modeling Testbed 

    Luettich, Richard A.; Wright, L. Donelson; Signell, Richard P.; Friedrichs, Carl T.; Friedrichs, Marjorie A. M.; Harding, John; Fennel, Katja; Howlett, Eoin; Graves, Sara J.; Smith, Elizabeth; Crane, Gary; Baltes, Rebecca (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-12-11)
    Strong and strategic collaborations among experts from academia, federal operational centers, and industry have been forged to create a U.S. IOOS Coastal and Ocean Modeling Testbed (COMT). The COMT mission is to accelerate ...
  • Sedimentation processes in a coral reef embayment : Hanalei Bay, Kauai 

    Storlazzi, Curt D.; Field, Michael E.; Bothner, Michael H.; Presto, M. K.; Draut, Amy E. (Elsevier B.V., 2009-06-08)
    Oceanographic measurements and sediment samples were collected during the summer of 2006 as part of a multi-year study of coastal circulation and the fate of terrigenous sediment on coral reefs in Hanalei Bay, Kauai. The ...
  • U.S. IOOS coastal and ocean modeling testbed : inter-model evaluation of tides, waves, and hurricane surge in the Gulf of Mexico 

    Kerr, Patrick C.; Donahue, Aaron S.; Westerink, Joannes J.; Luettich, Richard A.; Zheng, L. Y.; Weisberg, Robert H.; Huang, Y.; Wang, H. V.; Teng, Y.; Forrest, D. R.; Roland, A.; Haase, A. T.; Kramer, A. W.; Taylor, A. A.; Rhome, J. R.; Feyen, J. C.; Signell, Richard P.; Hanson, J. L.; Hope, M. E.; Estes, R. M.; Dominguez, R. A.; Dunbar, R. P.; Semeraro, L. N.; Westerink, H. J.; Kennedy, A. B.; Smith, J. M.; Powell, M. D.; Cardone, V. J.; Cox, A. T. (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-10-08)
    A Gulf of Mexico performance evaluation and comparison of coastal circulation and wave models was executed through harmonic analyses of tidal simulations, hindcasts of Hurricane Ike (2008) and Rita (2005), and a benchmarking ...
  • The use (and misuse) of sediment traps in coral reef environments : theory, observations, and suggested protocols 

    Storlazzi, Curt D.; Field, Michael E.; Bothner, Michael H. (Springer, 2010-12-17)
    Sediment traps are commonly used as standard tools for monitoring “sedimentation” in coral reef environments. In much of the literature where sediment traps were used to measure the effects of “sedimentation” on corals, ...
  • 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 ...
