Estimating the current risk of coastal flooding requires adequate information on extreme sea levels. For over a decade, the only global data available was the DINAS-COAST Extreme Sea Levels (DCESL) dataset, which applies a static approximation to estimate extreme sea levels. Recently, a dynamically derived dataset was developed: the Global...

Tides are a key component in coastal extreme water levels. Possible changes in the tides caused by mean sea-level rise (SLR) are therefore of importance in the analysis of coastal flooding, as well as many other applications. We investigate the effect of future SLR on the tides globally using a fully global forward tidal model: OTISmpi....

The use of reclaimed asphalt, secondary component materials and/or additives and lower temperature asphalt are being increasingly used in order to improve the sustainability of asphalt production. The use of reclaimed asphalt reduces the need for virgin materials whilst lower temperature asphalts have reduced CO2 emissions, increased...

There is a need for a method for assessing the results from changes in the potential durability of road materials due to the inclusion of reclaimed and secondary component materials in the manufacture of new road materials. Such changes will have an effect on the cost of the construction maintenance, both financially to the client and...

The coastal zone is one of the most dynamic environments on our planet and is much affected by global change, especially sea-level rise. Coastal environments harbour valuable ecosystems, but they are also hugely important from a societal point of view. This book, which draws on the expertise of 21 leading international coastal scientists,...

he Comité Européen de Normalisation / European Committee for Standardisation was formed in the early sixties and was charged with preparing common rules and standards to be used in all member countries to ensure no barriers to trade. As part of that programme, new harmonised European specifications for paving grade bitumens are being developed....

Long-term prediction of sediment transport and of morphological behaviour in the coastal zone, in response to human interference or to change in environmental conditions (collectively global change) is an increasingly important issue in coastal zone management, especially in relation to the needs for environmentally compatible development....

A possible approach for the development of simple predictive methods of shoreface profile evolution is described. By application of a detailed process-based, cross-shore morphodynamic model and of some inductive assumptions we build simple descriptions which reproduce possible behaviours of the upper zones of shoreface profile as a function of...

While in general the response to shoreline recession on all beaches is similar, there are significant differences in the best approach on shingle beaches when compared to sand beaches due to their distinct characteristics. Soft engineering, particularly shingle nourishment, is increasingly being favored over hard engineering as it offers greater...

The shingle beaches in the eastern half of Christchurch Bay are discussed; as they have a range of profiles, typical of many of those found elsewhere in Southern Britain. The data comprises six monthly cross-sections, at 33 locations within the study area and much more frequent cross-sections at two contrasting intensive study areas (ISA) with,...

In a number of flights in the stratosphere over mountainous terrain in the western U.S.A., much valuable data was collected. Flights were planned on the basis of tropospheric lee wave forecasts and were usually made along wind at heights from the tropopause to about 50000 ft over California and Nevada. Mountain waves, deduced from an analysis of...
