Influence of groundwater on the beach profile change

Influence of groundwater on the beach profile change

Relationships of hydrological parameters which are groundwater level, rainfall, and tides to the beach profile change of a beach are examined in order to advance understanding on swash zone morphology. Heavy rainfall and drought affect the groundwater level in Malaysia during two seasons. First, heavy rainfall and storms contribute to higher groundwater level during the wet season; thereby enhance the erosion rate. Second, lesser rainfall or no rain during the dry season will drop the groundwater level and enhances the accretion rate. According to this phenomenon, seasonal variation factor has significant impact to the sediment transport due to the groundwater level effects. A field investigation is conducted at Desaru beach with three monitoring wells are installed cross shore to the beach along with a rain gauge at the upslope. A tide gauge is installed at jetty Tanjung Balau in order to record the water level. Two field works are done for one week during spring and neap tides for both seasons. From the analysis obtained, Desaru is categorised as medium-sandy beach with the mean of medium grain size, d 50 = 0.37 mm. It is found

Turtle Beach

While I was writing the Act Two, I hit a wall. After Adam agrees to go fishing with Taka and Leon, I couldn’t give him a reason to go back to camp when he stumbles on Saito using the radio. After weeks and weeks of brain storming, every idea I came out with is either not sufficient or not natural. I kept on seeking solutions by creating new ideas rather than look back from the things I already created. The solution was simple, Kenji! The fishing party finds Kenji on the beach; Adam picks it up, and brings it back to Saito at the camp. In fact, Adam volunteers to bring Kenji back to Saito is a sign of friendship, which serves as a high point of the great reverse when he discovers Saito is listening the radio while everyone is away, bringing Act Three.

‘Contrary Emotions’: The Irony of Fear in Ian McEwan’s On Chesil Beach (2007)

‘Contrary Emotions’: The Irony of Fear in Ian McEwan’s On Chesil Beach (2007)

[Edward] stood here, half naked among the ruins of his wedding-night. He was aided in his surrender by the clarity that comes with a sudden absence of desire. With his thoughts no longer softened or blurred by longing, he was capable of registering an insult with forensic objectivity. And what an insult it was, what contempt she showed for him with her cry of revulsion and the fuss with the pillow, what a twist of scalpel, to run from the room without a word, leaving him with the disgusting taint of shame, and all the burden of failure. She had done what she could to make the situation worse, and irretrievable. He was contemptible to her, she wanted to punish him, to leave him alone and contemplate his inadequacies without any thought for her own part (133). In Edward, what should have been the joys of a wedding-night has become affliction, and the honey moon, a bitter moon. Besides, the passage above underscores in Edward a move from shamefulness to guilt and then its rejection. Florence experiences this feeling as well. In fact, when she saw Edward heading towards her on the beach, a feeling of fear arouses in her:

came from places with easy access to beaches like myself, others had to drive multiple hours to the nearest beach. For them, part of the draw to the San Luis Obispo area was the ac- cess to beaches. Pismo Beach, Avila Beach and even Morro Bay have beach access and are about 20 minutes away from campus. I have talked to students who have gone to the beach regularly growing up and but in a different area. However, it became the people who grew up without beach access that made me appre- ciate beaches (and my hometown) more. After all, some of these people waited 18-19 years to be close to a beach, let alone see a beach. For them, it became heaven, to be laying in the sand and hear the waves crash while all the

Monitoring urban beaches with qPCR vs. culture measures of fecal indicator bacteria: Implications for public notification

Monitoring urban beaches with qPCR vs. culture measures of fecal indicator bacteria: Implications for public notification

The past 12 years have seen great strides toward the application of qPCR methods to beach monitoring and notification purposes. Studies of qPCR methods for water testing have advanced from laboratory analysis of frozen filters [2, 11, 14, 26–28] and data analyses using correlations or linear regression methods. Some of those studies [11, 14, 29–32] as well as newer investigations [13, 16, 17] evaluated associations between the exceed- ance of threshold values for culture and qPCR methods. However, because these studies generally did not include a time series of daily measurements, comparisons were limited to Day0 culture threshold exceedance and Day0 qPCR threshold exceedance. Our finding that, after ac- counting for chance, Day0 culture and Day1 qPCR re- sults had no meaningful agreement regarding BAV exceedance (Table 5), leaves beach managers in settings like Chicago with little scientific basis for the continued use of culture testing for daily public notification pur- poses. The fact that, by contrast, Day1 culture BAV exceedances (but not Day0 culture BAV exceedances)
