Proceedings of the Sixth International Symposium on Coastal Engineering and Science of Coastal Sediment Process, held in New Orleans, Louisiana, May 13-17, 2007. Sponsored by Ports and Harbors Committee of the Coasts, Oceans, Ports, and Rivers Institute of ASCE. In cooperation with America Shore and Beach Preservation Association; Department of Oceanography and Coastal Science, Louisiana State University; Geological Society of America; International Association of Geomorphologists; International Union of Geological Science; U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Coastal Inlets Research Program; U.S. Geological Survey, Costal and Marine Geology Program.
This collection contains 197 papers presenting leading-edge research devoted to the physical aspects of sediment processes in coastal and inlet environments. Papers emphasize the long-term consequences of coastal morphology and explore coastal sediment processes from the micro to regional scale. This volume offers practical engineering solutions through use of case studies focusing on beach, channel, and coastal inlets.
