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 ...
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 ...
Wave refraction and prediction of breaker parameters along the Kerala Coast, India
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1997)
Numerical wave refraction study for the Kerala Coast has been carried out for waves representing southwest monsoon (June-September), northest monsoon (October-February) and fair weather period (February-May). Distribution ...
Coastal processes along the shorefront of Chilka Lake, east coast of India
(NISCAIR, New Delhi, 1993)
Chilka Lake (Orissa, India) inlet mouth is exposed to high annual littoral drift of about 1 x 10 super(6) m super(3). The inlet mouth was observed to migrate about 500 m northward during the period of one year study. ...
RIP current zones along beaches in Goa, west coast of India
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 1997)
Goa has a 125-km-long coastline of which two-thirds consists of beautiful sandy beaches. There are mainly 17 beaches having significant importance of tourism. Sporadically, surf drownings have been reported at a few stretches ...
Fine particle deposition at Vainguinim tourist beach, Goa, India
(Coastal Research Foundation, 1998)
Vainguinim Beach is a small and narrow pocket beach located on the rocky coast of Dona Paula Bay, at the estuarine front of the Zuari River in Goa, India. The beach has been widely used for recreation and swimming by a ...
