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. ...
Geotechnical studies of Jaitapur marine clay
(NIO, Goa, 1991)
A gravity corer was designed and fabricated for near shore sediment sampling. The corer was operated off Jaitapur, West Coast of India, and 70 cores were obtained. The performance of the corer was quite satisfactory. The ...
The wave vane - A device to measure the breaker angle
Deep water wave characteristics off Karwar, west coast of India
(NIO, Goa, 1993)
Measurement and prediction of tides for Gopalpur Post, Orissa
(CWPRS, Pune, 1994)
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 ...
Planning and management of the coastal zone in India - A perspective
(Taylor and Francis, 1992)
India's coastal zone has, since ancient times, played a very significant role in socioeconomic, political, and defense developments. For a developing country like India with a vast coastal zone, there is a need for ...
Shoreline dynamics of the Lakshadweep Islands
(NISCAIR, New Delhi, 1993)
Lakshadweep group of islands are mainly coral atolls. Fringing reefs protect these small islands from the attack of waves. This paper describes the waves and currents acting on Kalpeni, Kavaratti, Minicoy, Agatti, Kadamat ...
Field measurement on longshore current variation between Ratnagiri and Mangalore, west coast of India
(CWPRS, Pune, 1992)
The daily measurements on longshore current velocity and direction were carried out at selected 12 stations along the coast between Ratnagiri and Mangalore, India. The directional wave data measured at Karwar were used to ...
