Variations in nearshore processes along Nagapattinam coast, India
(Indian Academy of Sciences, 2002)
Directional wave data collected at 10 m water depth, at 2 km distance off Nagore from March 1998 to February 1999, were used to estimate the longshore currents and longshore sediment transport rate considering the sea and ...
Neural network-genetic programming for sediment transport
(Institution of Civil Engineers, 2007)
The planning, operation, design and maintenance of almost all harbour and coastal engineering facilities call for an estimation of the longshore sediment transport rate. This is currently and popularly done with the help ...
Dredge spoil disposal off Kavaratti Island, Lakshadweep, India
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1996)
Maintenance dredging has been carried out along the navigational channel at Kavaratii Island and dredge spoil is disposed in the open sea. This paper describes the movement of sediment plume while dredging and disposal. ...
Nearshore processes along north Karnataka coast
(Allied, Chennai, 2001)
Ten base stations were established along the shoreline between Karwar and Bhatkal and monthly beach profiles, breaking wave characteristics and longshore currents were measured for a period of one year. The lowest beach ...
Coastal processes and longshore sediment transport along Kundapura coast, central west coast of India.
Longshore sediment transport (LST) is one of the main factors influencing coastal geomorphology. This study examines the variation in the LST estimate using four well known formulae and the sensitivity of wave parameters ...
Directional wave spectra off southeast coast of Tamil Nadu
(Allied, Chennai (India), 1996)
Knowledge on directional wave parameter is important for the design of any coastal structure and estimation of nearshore sediment tansport. The desired degree of detail may vary from the information on predominant wave ...
