This article contains data on the effects of seagrass decline on wave energy along the shoreline of Barnegat Bay (USA) previously evaluated in Donatelli et al., 2019. This study was carried out applying the Coupled-Ocean-Atmosphere-Wave-Sediment Transport (COAWST) numerical modelling framework to six historical maps of seagrass distribution. A new routine recently implemented in COAWST was used, which explicitly computes the wave thrust acting on salt marsh boundaries. The numerical modelling results are reported in terms of wind-wave heights for different seagrass coverages, wind speeds and directions. From a comparison with a numerical experiment without submerged aquatic vegetation, we show how the computed wave thrust on marsh boundaries can be reduced by seagrass beds.

Stress triggering in thrust and subduction earthquakes and stress interaction between the southern San Andreas and nearby thrust and strike-slip faults Lin, Jian; Stein, Ross S. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-02-03)We argue that key features of thrust earthquake triggering, inhibition, and clustering can be explained by Coulomb stress changes, which we illustrate by a suite of representative models and by detailed examples. Whereas ...
Gemmell, Brad J.; Fogerson, Stephanie M.; Costello, John H.; Morgan, Jennifer R.; Dabiri, John O.; Colin, Sean P. (Company of Biologists, 2016-12-14)Swimming animals commonly bend their bodies to generate thrust. For undulating animals such as eels and lampreys, their bodies bend in the form of waves that travel from head to tail. These kinematics accelerate the flow ...
Stress transfer among en echelon and opposing thrusts and tear faults : triggering caused by the 2003 Mw = 6.9 Zemmouri, Algeria, earthquake Lin, Jian; Stein, Ross S.; Meghraoui, Mustapha; Toda, Shinji; Ayadi, Abdelhakim; Dorbath, Catherine; Belabbes, Samir (American Geophysical Union, 2011-03-23)The essential features of stress interaction among earthquakes on en echelon thrusts and tear faults were investigated, first through idealized examples and then by study of thrust faulting in Algeria. We calculated coseismic ...
