Sea Level Rise is anticipated to significantly affect human development in the coastal zone by the end of the Twenty-First Century. The rising waters bring greater risk of floods, submergence of low lying land, salinization of freshwater supplies, and the erosion of sandy beaches. Quantifying these impacts spurns action by those hoping to adapt...

Tourism is one of the main sources of income of Jamaica. . However, at the moment the beaches are retreating. An example is the erosion of Hellshire Beach, showing a retreat of ten meters in only seven years. To preserve the beaches effectively, a new concept is requested. The main requirements of the system are wave attenuation and the marine...

Due to frequently occurring storms, like hurricanes and cold fronts, the coasts around the Mexican port city Veracruz suffer from erosion. This is most severe at the beaches of Boca del Rio just south of the city of Veracruz. Here, small beaches can be found between large groynes. These groynes block the southward littoral drift significantly...

The starting point for this project are the severe erosion problems at the Pacuare Nature Reserve, situated on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. The Reserve’s installations are situated next to a lagoon which is separated from the open sea by a barrier beach. The lagoon is connected on the landward side to local river? and channel system....

In this report the beach erosion problem at the Village of Mayabeque, located 60 km south of Havana at the South coast of Cuba will be investigated. Mayabeque is a small local holiday village. 20 houses are permanently inhabited and in the summer the population goes up to 3000, mostly Cuban people all spending there holidays here. Mayabeque...

The present report describes some of the results obtained during experiments in the Large Wave Flume of the Fluid Mechanics Laboratory of the Delft University of Technology. The experiments are part of the PhD-work of M. Boers. They follow on the LIP llD-experiments, carried out in the Delta Flume of Delft Hydraulics in spring 1993. During the...

In terms of both coastal erosion and structural damage Hurricane Opal may prove to have been the most destructive storm ever to impact the coastal zone of Florida. Structural damage, as well as, beach and dune erosion occurred throughout all of the Panhandle from Escambia to Franklin counties. Damage extended to a lesser degree into lower Gulf...

The present report gives the results of a study on bedforms and undertow in the surf zone. It is the objective of this study to get a better insight into the physical processes in the surf zone. In this study, we make use of the data obtained during the LIP llDexperiments (Arcilla et al. [1994] and Roelvink and Reniers [1994]). We derive the...

This study develops empirical predictive expressions for design of nearshore berms formed of dredged material. Such berms are placed in the form of long linear sand bars and are expected to behave as natural bars. The study examines the cross-shore movement of natural longshore bars at Duck, North Carolina. Beach profile survey data are...
