Native beach sediment and sediment from 9 potential borrow sites were investigated in 1986-87. The project, as finally completed, constructed a beach 8 miles long with a 100-ft-wide berm. A total of 2.7 million cu yd was removed from two borrow sites and placed on the beach. This report discusses the method used in sampling and analyzing sediment from the native beach and each borrow site. Beach samples were collected at periodic intervals along 36 profile lines perpendicular to the beach. Samples extended from the upper berm to -30 ft National Geodetic Vertical Datum. Grain size was computed for each sample, and a grand composite sample was computed for the entire beach. Results suggest that this technique collected and analyzed more samples than were necessary. Sampling schemes should be closely tied to local profile closure depth and take advantage of natural alongshore consistency in grain size. A streamlined sampling plan could also benefit the final calculated composite and improve the chance of nourishment success. Borrow sites were investigated through a combination of geophysical surveys and vibracores. Subbottom profile data were useful in locating potential coring sites. Channel samples were removed from each core and grain size analyses performed. Composite samples calculated for each borrow site were compared with the native beach composite to develop overfill ratios. Data from the cores, along with environmental and political considerations, reduced the number of potential borrow sites to three. (edc).

Topsoil on Bikini Island, which is located 2,500 miles southwest of Hawaii at 113 deg 35 min N, 165 deg 25 min E, was contaminated by radioactive fallout from nuclear weapons tests in the late 1940's and early 1950's. The uptake of this radioactive fallout, primarily cesium-137 in plants, has prevented resettlement of the island by the native population. One alternative solution proposed by the congressionally appointed Bikini Atoll Rehabilitation Committee involves removal of the contaminated topsoil and placement of the excavated material as a landfill on the 2,500-ft-wide reef flat adjacent to the eastern (windward) shore of the island. This paper explores that alternative by first developing an extremal wave climatology offshore of Bikini Island from 21 years (1959-1979) of typhoon data published by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center on Guam. Deepwater wave conditions just offshore of the reef are estimated and transformed to the point of breaking at the edge of the reef. Storm surge is estimated based on these same parameters. Wave setup on the reef flat is estimated based on the simulated breaking conditions. Given an estimate of the elevated water level across the reef caused by storm surge and wave setup, depth limitations and fractional decay are estimated to define wave conditions at the toe of the proposed revetment. A rubble-mound revetment design stable in these conditions, armored by coral limestone quarried from the reef flat, is then formulated and corresponding material quantities estimated.

The Colonial Beach, Virginia segmented detached breakwater and beach fill project consists of two sites, Central and Castlewood Park Beaches, constructed in October 1982 to protect a cohesive bluff (6 to 10 ft in height) eroding at a preproject rate estimated at 1.5 ft/year. The project sites were cooperatively monitored by the US Army Engineer District, Baltimore, and the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station Coastal Engineering Research Center from October 1982 through June 1985. This report presents the data collected during the monitoring program and documents the bathymetric and shoreline response to the structures. Although the water level increase due to storm conditions was not fully considered in the original design of the beach fills, the project sites have successfully prevented erosion of the beach bluff. Results from the monitoring program were used to modify the Central Beach fill elevation, eliminating inundation of the beach during storms and increasing its recreational value. (fr).

This text presents geologic processes in context with their impact on humans, our lives and societies. The author's goal is to both create informed citizens and nurture an understanding of geologic science. Part I introduces philosophy and fundamental concepts, the structure of the Earth and plate tectonics, and the origin and significance of rocks and minerals. Part II addresses the major natural hazards including earthquakes, volcanic activity, rivers and flooding, landslides, and coastal processes. Part III discusses the major natural resources associated with the geological environment and the subject of pollution. Part IV presents the important topic of global change, environmental management, and relationships between the environment. For individuals looking for an environmental perspective on physical geology.
