Decadal-timescale estuarine geomorphic change under future scenarios of climate and sediment supply
Future estuarine geomorphic change, in response to climate change, sea-level rise, and watershed sediment supply, may govern ecological function, navigation, and water quality. We estimated geomorphic changes in Suisun ...
Storm-induced inner-continental shelf circulation and sediment transport : Long Bay, South Carolina
(Elsevier B.V., 2012-05-10)
Long Bay is a sediment-starved, arcuate embayment located along the US East Coast connecting both South and North Carolina. In this region the rates and pathways of sediment transport are important because they determine ...
Shoaling of nonlinear internal waves in Massachusetts Bay
(American Geophysical Union, 2008-08-19)
The shoaling of the nonlinear internal tide in Massachusetts Bay is studied with a fully nonlinear and nonhydrostatic model. The results are compared with current and temperature observations obtained during the August ...
A wetting and drying scheme for ROMS
(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 ...
Elastic wave speeds and moduli in polycrystalline ice Ih, sI methane hydrate, and sII methane-ethane hydrate
(American Geophysical Union, 2009-02-27)
We used ultrasonic pulse transmission to measure compressional, P, and shear, S, wave speeds in laboratory-formed polycrystalline ice Ih, sI methane hydrate, and sII methane-ethane hydrate. From the wave speed's linear ...

Development of a Coupled Ocean–Atmosphere–Wave–Sediment Transport (COAWST) Modeling System
(Elsevier B.V., 2010-07-29)
Understanding the processes responsible for coastal change is important for managing our coastal resources, both natural and economic. The current scientific understanding of coastal sediment transport and geology suggests ...
Glacial morphology and depositional sequences of the Antarctic continental shelf
(Geological Society of America, 1995-07)
We propose a simple model for the unusual depositional sequences and morphology of the Antarctic continental shelf. Our model considers the regional stratal geometry and the reversed morphology of the Antarctic continental ...
Refining the model of barrier island formation along a paraglacial coast in the Gulf of Maine
Details of the internal architecture and local geochronology of Plum Island, the longest barrier in the Gulf of Maine, has refined our understanding of barrier island formation in paraglacial settings. Ground-penetrating ...
Glacial influence on the geochemistry of riverine iron fluxes to the Gulf of Alaska and effects of deglaciation
(American Geophysical Union, 2011-08-25)
Riverine iron (Fe) derived from glacial weathering is a critical micronutrient source to ecosystems of the Gulf of Alaska (GoA). Here we demonstrate that the source and chemical nature of riverine Fe input to the GoA could ...
