"If you take the word of those alongshore
sharks against mine--' the other began thickly.
Sediment supply consists largely of medium sand derived from erosion of the glacial deposits north of Chatham and the alongshore
transport creating the Nauset Spit barrier.
Where waves approach the coast obliquely the beach sediment is moved alongshore
in a direction determined by the dominant wave approach (Johnson, 1956; Inman and Frautschy, 1966; Silvester, 1950).
A poorly known beach profile change apparently influenced by the experimental structure occurs within the near-shore area alongshore
and adjacent to the experimental structure, both within the offshore extent of the structure (less than 150 feet) and beyond the offshore extent of the structure (greater than 150 feet but less than 500 feet) at the installation sites.
Martha's Vineyard and the Elizabeth Islands protect Woods Hole and make it a safe harbor, but they also block scientists from immediate access to undisturbed ocean waves and alongshore
Larvae can spend weeks to months in the plankton, allowing for considerable alongshore
Paine (1976) suggests that the sea star's recruitment is rare or infrequent and that movements alongshore
of adult sea stars are negligible.
variability may result from coastline shape, including headlands that locally block or accelerate flow parallel to the coastline (e.g., Rothermel et al.
Unusually warm surface water in the northeast Pacific (>2.5[degrees]C above average) from the fall of 2013 to 2015 would have allowed larvae to survive alongshore
transport off the coasts of Oregon, Washington, and southern British Columbia.
Reefs in the Baltic Silurian basin formed alongshore
in a high-energy environment and their growth and disintegration were of a similar magnitude.
Eggs and fish larvae may be subjected to intense alongshore
and cross-shelf flow in upwelling ecosystems, such that the ability to develop or adopt retention mechanisms near the upwelling centres may play a relevant role to maintain local populations (Wing et al., 1998; Pringle, 2007) and hence successful recruitment.
The observed trajectories reflect a variety of phenomena, characteristic to the current field of the Gulf of Finland (Figs 4, 5): the presence of relatively small mesoscale eddies with a diameter of about 5 km to the north of Naissaar, inertial oscillations in the open part of the gulf to the north of Pakri Peninsula and further north of Naissaar, and relatively rapid almost straight alongshore
drift apparently steered by topography.
