The exchange mechanisms associated with transient storage zones of a natural heterogeneous environment are often modified by unsteady water flux in the transient storage zone. This phenomenon can play an important role in the mass exchange between the free flowing water zone and the transient storage zones and may be the cause of the plateau region of the tail of observed concentration curves in ...

This paper presents the development of a Regional Neural Network for Water Level (RNN WL) predictions, with an application to the coastal inlets along the South Shore of Long Island, New York. Long-term water level data at coastal inlets are important for studying coastal hydrodynamics sediment transport. However, it is quite common that long-term water level observations may be not available, du ... Read More
Large bed forms, such as dunes or sand waves, can pose a navigation hazard for inlet channels (Pope 2000). Understanding the conditions causing their formation can be an aid in navigation channel management. This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineer Technical Note (CHETN) is concerned with large bed forms that chronically or periodically encroach on the authorized navigation depth. Smaller bed forms h ...

Marine scientists in Germany have issued an alarming warning about the radically alteration of the circulation of water in the Arctic Ocean. The findings by the Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences (IFM- GEOMAR) in Kiel, Germany, have dire implications for climate change in the Northern Hemisphere. Hitherto, the circulation of the Arctic Ocean was driven by the formation of sea ice rather than th ... Read More
Following a three-month demonstration of Minnesota-based energy technology company Independent Natural Resources Inc.'s (INRI(TM)) SEADOG Pump system, researchers from the Texas A&M University at Galveston Marine Engineering Technology Department released a report today validating the performance and output of the innovative yet simple technology. Results of three-month Gulf of Mexico demonstrati ... Read More
This is a free online book. It was written by Robert H. Stewart from Texas A&M University. Stuff like this is not all that common, so this is really kind of a gem -- it's a really great free source of information ... Read More
On April 28, 2002, the Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) captured this image of very bright, sediment-laden water in the Rio de la Plata of South America. Along the coast to the northwest, however, very little light was reflected back to the orbiting sensor. It is not clear what is causing this large, very dark patch of water. Perhaps a phytoplankton bloom being fed by high-nutrient ... Read More
