Estimation of wave directional spreading in shallow water
Wave directional spreading in shallow water is described in this paper. Waves were measured for a period of two months using the Datawell directional waverider buoy at 15m water depth on the east coast of India in the Bay ...
Numerical modelling of nearshore wave transformation
(Publ. and Inf. Dir., New Delhi, India, 1994)
A software has been developed for numerical refraction study based on finite amplitude wave theories. Wave attenuation due to shoaling, bottom friction, bottom percolation and viscous dissipation has also been incorporated. ...
Longshore currents and sediment trnsport along Kannirajapuram Coast, Tamilnadu, India
(Coastal Research Foundation, 2000)
The objective of the study was to estimate longshore current and sediment transport from measured wave data and from the observations on the littoral environment. A directional wave rider buoy was deployed at 12m water ...
Measurement and prediction of tides for Gopalpur Post, Orissa
(CWPRS, Pune, 1994)
Longshore transport based on directional waves along north Tamilnadu Coast, India
(Coastal Research Foundation, 2001)
The accurate assessment of longshore sediment transport pattern along Nagapattinam-Poompuhar, Tamil Nadu, India coastline bears significance due to the historical erosion and its geographical location adjoining the sheltered ...
Wave statistics around the Indian coast based on ship observed data
(NISCAIR, New Delhi, 1991)
Wave characteristics around the Indian Coast are discussed based on the ship reported wave data compiled over 19 y (1968-1986). This data have been compared with instrumentally measured waves at 2 locations (Kakinada on ...
Littoral drift sources and sinks along the Indian coast
(Indian Academy of Sciences, 2001)
Numerous theoretical and field studies have been carried out to quantify the volume and direction of littoral sediment transport along the Indian coast. Nevertheless, very little effort has been made to identify the sources ...
Beach processes between Mulgund and Shiroda, west coast of India
Study on beach processes for an year shows seasonal changes without annual net erosion. The beaches are stable and regain the maximum profiles during February to April. Distribution of longshore current direction is not ...
Surf zone dynamics along the south Karnataka Coast between Bhatkal and Ullal, west coast of India
Field study between Bhatkal and Ullal from June 1989 to May 1990 indicated that the beaches along this segment of coastline are essentially stable showing only seasonal fluctuations. Beaches after being subjected to erosional ...
