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 ...
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 ...
Effect of roughness formulation on the performance of a coupled wave, hydrodynamic, and sediment transport model
(Elsevier B.V., 2010-03-27)
A variety of algorithms are available for parameterizing the hydrodynamic bottom roughness associated with grain size, saltation, bedforms, and wave–current interaction in coastal ocean models. These parameterizations give ...
Along-shelf current variability on the Catalan inner-shelf (NW Mediterranean)
(American Geophysical Union, 2012-09-22)
We examine the circulation over the inner-shelf of the Catalan Sea using observations of currents obtained from three Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (two at 24 m and one at 50 m) during March–April 2011. The along-shelf ...
Duration and severity of Medieval drought in the Lake Tahoe Basin
(Elsevier B.V., 2001-09-16)
Droughts in the western U.S. in the past 200 years are small compared to several megadroughts that occurred during Medieval times. We reconstruct duration and magnitude of extreme droughts in the northern Sierra Nevada ...
Correction to “Elastic wave speeds and moduli in polycrystalline ice Ih, sI methane hydrate, and sII methane-ethane hydrate”
(American Geophysical Union, 2009-04-10)
Coupled atmosphere-ocean-wave simulations of a storm event over the Gulf of Lion and Balearic Sea
(American Geophysical Union, 2012-09-15)
The coastal areas of the North-Western Mediterranean Sea are one of the most challenging places for ocean forecasting. This region is exposed to severe storms events that are of short duration. During these events, significant ...
Storm-driven sediment transport in Massachusetts Bay
(Elsevier B.V., 2007-09-22)
Massachusetts Bay is a semi-enclosed embayment in the western Gulf of Maine about 50 km wide and 100 km long. Bottom sediment resuspension is controlled predominately by storm-induced surface waves and transport by the ...
Large internal waves in Massachusetts Bay transport sediments offshore
(Elsevier B.V., 2006-09-26)
A field experiment was carried out in Massachusetts Bay in August 1998 to assess the role of large-amplitude internal waves (LIWs) in resuspending bottom sediments. The field experiment consisted of a four-element moored ...
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 ...
