  • The shoreline preservation index as a relative-age dating tool for late Pleistocene shorelines: an example from the Bonneville basin, U.S.A.
  • Indicator ; Lake ; Palaeo-environment ; Palaeoclimatology ; Palaeolake ; Quaternary ; Relative dating ; Shoreline ; Statistics ; United States of America ; Utah
  • This paper evaluates the usefulness of the shoreline preservation index for estimating the age of late Pleistocene palaeolake shorelines. It also determines for the study area the relative influence of various factors on shoreline preservation
  • , and wether or not shoreline preservation varies significantly with shoreline aspect. Data for this analysis were collected from the basin of the largest late Pleistocene palaeolake in western North America, Lake Bonneville.
  • Shorelines and isostasy: retrospect and prospect in Shorelines and isostasy.
  • Shorelines and isostasy in Scotland in Shorelines and isostasy.
  • Climate and induced changes in relation to shoreline migration trends at the Nile delta promontories, Egypt
  • This study examines data for Nile flood indicators (water level, sediment load, and discharge) covering the same time span as that of the examined shoreline positions. The AA. also report on more recent shoreline positions to study the long-term
  • shoreline migrations of the Nile promontories during the last two centuries. An attempt is made to relate the shoreline migration trends to the available climatic factors, such as historical Nile flood records in connection with the paleoclimate changes
  • Shorelines of the Uppsala esker east-central Sweden : their use as indicators of regional differences in shore displacement
  • Esker ; Fluvioglacial features ; Palaeogeography ; Sea level ; Shoreline ; Statistics ; Sweden ; Vertical movement
  • About 750 different shoremarks, mainly shore terraces, have been levelled along the Uppsala esker. Using various methods it has been possible to arrange the shoremarks to shorelines. It was found that the shorelines on the whole were sloping towards
  • the north. The shoreline studies give evidence of more pronounced regional differences in shore displacement in earlier Litorina times than those found today.
  • Helsingin rantaviivan muuttuminen The alteration of shoreline in the Helsinki city area
  • Holocene shorelines in Britain: recent studies
  • Shoreline forms and deposits in Gallocanta Lake (NE Spain)
  • Climatic variation ; Lacustrine sediment ; Lake ; Lake level ; Quaternary ; Semi-arid area ; Shoreline ; Spain ; Zaragoza
  • This study attempts to deduce the present and past shoreline dynamics of a small shallow lake. Gallocanta Lake is located in the central Iberian Chain, NE Spain, within a typically Mediterranean semi-arid region.
  • Shoreline erosion: a management framework
  • The purpose of this paper is to devise a management scheme suitable for dealing with continuous chronic shoreline erosion, consider criteria important for such management and identify the groups affected by and affecting erosion. This discussion
  • leads to the conclusion that there is a need to establish a shoreline management entity capable of taking a broad view of the issues involved.
  • Coastal processes and shoreline encroachment: implications for shoreline management in Ontario
  • Annotated bibliography of Italian Quaternary shorelines (1970-1984)
  • Bibliographie réalisée pour la Commission of Mediterranean and Black Sea Quaternary Shorelines, INQUA. C'est la suite d'une bibliographie déjà publiée, qui arrivait jusqu'à 1970. - (MLG)
  • Response of tide-dominated mangrove shorelines in Northern Australia to anticipated sea-level rise
  • Australia ; Coastal environment ; Forest ; Mangrove ; Northern Territory ; Salinity ; Sea level ; Shoreline ; Tropical zone
  • This paper examined the characteristics of tide-dominated mangrove shorelines in northern Australia, and suggests a framework, based upon morphodynamics, within which to view their response to a rise in sea level. Within this paper the response
  • of mangrove shorelines in a natural state, rather than where they have been disturbed, is considered.
  • Natural hazards of shoreline bluff erosion: a case study of Horizon View, Lake Huron
  • Canada ; Erosion ; Lake ; Land use ; Modelling ; Natural hazards ; Ontario ; Regional planning ; Sediment transport ; Shoreline
  • The objective of this study is the integration of an understanding of alongshore sediment transport into a proposed management framework for cohesive bluff shorelines. A study of a ten kilometre area along the southeastern Lake Huron shoreline
  • The measurement of relict shoreline altitudes in areas affected by glacio-isostasy, with particular reference to Scotland in Shorelines and isostasy.
  • This study draws attention to the importance of shoreline altitude measurement and reviews the techniques by which the measurements can be made. The detailed methodology developed in Scotland is described first, following which alternative methods
  • Measurement, correlation, and mapping of glacial Lake Algonquin shorelines in northern Michigan
  • Cartography ; Correlation ; Global Positioning System ; Isostasy ; Lake ; Lake level ; Michigan ; Proglacial lake ; Quaternary ; Shoreline ; United States of America
  • The aim of this article is to produce accurate lake-level curves for Main Lake Algonquin and several post-Main lakes, evaluate/correlate the post-Main lakes in light of new data on shoreline elevations, and accurately map the areas inundated
  • by the various lake levels. The AA. use differential global positioning system (DGPS) technology to measure elevations of unquestionable Algonquin shorelines at wave-cut bluffs. They then correlate their shoreline data to previous estimates of post-Main Algonquin
  • Ancient shorelines and quaternary vertical movements on Rurutu and Tubai (Austral Isles, French Polynesia)
  • French Polynesia ; Marine quaternary ; Sea level ; Shoreline ; Subsidence ; Vertical displacement
  • The ancient shorelines of the Jarlasa esker, province of Uppland, Southern Sweden

  • Aeolian features ; Erratic boulder ; Micromorphology ; Periglacial features ; Shoreline ; Snow ; Sweden ; Weathering
  • This paper sets out to examine a number of sites where ventifact development provides examples of probable abrasion by suspended particles. Two sites above the Highest Shoreline and two sites at, or below, the Highest Shoreline have been used
  • Age and paleoclimatic significance of the Stansbury shoreline of Lake Bonneville, northeastern Great Basin
  • The AA. present new data on the geomorphology, stratigraphic position, and age of the Stansbury shoreline. In addition, they offer a paleoclimatic hypothesis to explain the Stansbury oscillation.
  • Begriff und Wesen des Strandes als geomorphologische und naturräumliche Erscheinung. (The coastal shoreline as a geomorphological and regional phenomenon)
  • A new definition of term coastal shoreline is given which will include all features of a seashore such as location, substance, processes, minor units, environmental effects, and technogenous facilities, and in this way considers the coastline
