Reef-Platform Coral Boulders: Evidence for High-Energy Marine Inundation Events on Tropical Coastlines

The first aim this is to offer a treatise at the value and cost of coarse clastic carbonate sediments (i. e. huge coral boulders) on tropical coastlines for knowing either sleek and pre-historical (Holocene) high-magnitude marine inundation occasions. there was a speedy groundswell of curiosity in huge carbonate blocks on tropical coasts during the last decade, but it's not commonly preferred that such positive factors have been saw and recorded again within the early explorations of Matthew Flinders at the nice Barrier Reef within the 1800s.

Design of Coastal Structures and Sea Defenses

Coastal buildings are an immense part in any coastal security scheme. They without delay keep an eye on wave and typhoon surge motion or to stabilize a seashore which supplies defense to the coast. This publication presents the main updated technical advances at the layout and building of coastal constructions and sea defenses.

Ray and Wave Chaos in Ocean Acoustics - Chaos in Waveguides

A scientific examine of chaotic ray dynamics in underwater acoustic waveguides started within the mid-1990s whilst it used to be discovered that this issue performs a vital position in long-range sound propagation within the ocean. The phenomenon of ray chaos and its manifestation at a finite wavelength -- wave chaos -- were investigated by means of combining tools from the idea of wave propagation and the speculation of dynamical and quantum chaos.

Oceanography: An Invitation to Marine Science

Built in partnership with the nationwide Geographic Society, market-leading OCEANOGRAPHY: a call for participation TO MARINE technology, 9e offers a uncomplicated figuring out of the medical questions, complexities, and uncertainties keen on ocean use-as good because the position and value of the sea in nurturing and maintaining existence in the world.

1962]. The authors made similar discovery but in different regions that extreme precipitation events occurred less/more frequently a few days before/after a full moon (Bowen’s signal). Adderley and Bowen [1962] suggested that the Moon perhaps modulates the amount of meteor dust collected by the Earth. Lethbridge [1970] further indicated that the disturbance of magnetosphere could be the reason. By focusing on the spatial progression over the United States in the phase of lunar-precipitation relationship, Hanson et al.

Associated with the SPA characteristics, Chen and Chen [2003] indicated that the northeasterly monsoon flow over Taiwan generally reaches the maximum intensity in winter. 5◦N, 121◦ E) in early January. In late January, the west Pacific subtropical high axis at the 850 hPa level extends westward and weakens the SPA. In the upper levels, the westerly jet axis reaches its southernmost position in January when the monsoon cold surges are most frequent [Yeh and Chen, 1984]. 53-day period is exactly at ∼63◦ heliocentric latitude.
