[Richard Silvester; John R C Hsu] -- The primary objective of this book is to provide a review of techniques available for the problems of wave propagation in regions with unever beds as they are encountered in coastal areas. The view. Property owners and contractors guide to re-vegetation of coastal bluffs for stabilization of slopes. NOTES: The content of this publication can now also be found as a web page.

The strength of this book is the identification of similitude requirements, in terms of relevant di-mensionless products, for a variety of modeled coastal phenomena. Where complete similitude cannotbe achieved,scale effects are identifiedand Coastal Stabilization; Innovative Concepts, Rich.   This book discusses coastal defense measures, which have not improved in the past few decades, and better alternatives. It emphasizes on the existence of stable bays in coastal geomorphology and their use in coastal stabilization.

This book discusses coastal defense measures, which have not improved in the past few decades, and better alternatives. It emphasizes on the existence of stable bays in coastal geomorphology and their use in coastal stabilization. About this book. This volume includes a host of methods for retaining sediment on the coastal areas where it is required. Examples of stabilization methods are taken from many countries, but the emphasis is on oceanic margins, headland control, erosion prevention and other defence Range: £ - £ 1. Waves stir up sand moving sand with longshore currents or offshore. 2. This give and take of sand results in a net loss of sand. 3. Seawall is built causing sand to accumulate on the upstream side of the sea wall, the beach in front of the wall disappears, longshore current are unable to deposit sand downstream, so the beach in front of neighbors house erodes.

Englewood Cliffs, N.J.: PTR Prentice Hall, © (OCoLC) Structural Options for Beach Stabilization • Hard Structure options include, wood and rock groins, seawalls, inlet jetties, emergent or submerged sills and breakwaters • Soft Structure options include, building dunes, planting vegetation installing Geo-tubes, sand bags • A variety of other innovative options have been tried with mixed File Size: 2MB. chapter on Coastal Defenses illustrated this approach with photographs and maps for Singapore. This is a nice book which may end up on many of your shelves, particularly if you're moving from the field of hydrocarbons to environmental geology, with an emphasis on coastal protection and stabilization. It is intended to be used as a small group activity ( students in each group) following a short introductory lecture about coastal processes (especially longshore drift) and the different types of coastal stabilization structures (jetties, groins, and breakwaters).
