Ships in 3-5 business days.
With today’s problems surrounding shoreline protection, this book should be of great assistance. This manual contains a compilation of 2 Navy and 2 Corps manuals all relative to the subject of... More > coastal protection and the affects tidal action has on our shorelines. The titles included are: Coastal Protection is a U.S. Navy publication which deals specifically with waves and their characteristics. In order to prepare safe designs, the normal and extreme waves which will act against the structure must be evaluated so that a design wave can be selected. Pilebuck takes the user through this phase into the application of data to actual design of breakwaters and seawalls. Storm Surge Analysis: High tides and wind-generated waves combine to provide a potential for abnormally high water levels and flooding during hurricanes or other serious storms. An understanding of this phenomena is essential in order to plan control structures or design others.< Less

Protected Adriatic By Fabio Vallarola
Paperback: $8.90
Ships in 3-5 business days.
A closed sea geographically well-defined within its coastlines, rich in natural and human life. A concentration of Biodiversity in the broadest sense of the word: ecological diversity in nature and... More > cultural diversity among men. A priceless treasure of the planet, this is the Adriatic. How to manage these places in order to preserve their peculiarities? A system of coastal and marine protected areas seems to be the only system that, despite everything, has been proving effective for more than a century. To systematize protected areas, to create a "Network", a network for sharing cultural exchanges and experiences and, above all, an ecological network. This is the challenge that awaits us in the short term. To make better the future of the Adriatic Sea.< Less
