Hormones, sand & terrorism

to develop computer models for prediction of the physical impacts of offshore dredging on nearby beaches. They have modeled currents and waves and how they are altered by dredging. They have also compared the model results to actual field measurements of nearshore waves and currents. Three potential dredge sites near Folly Beach, SC have been evaluated for impacts. Folley Beach was last nourished in 1993 by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and that effort had a predicted design lifetime of eight years. No funding has yet been identified to renourish the beach, but according to the Corps schedule it is overdue.

Works' research team awaits to see if dredging at one of the Folly Beach sites occurs and what the actual results are. If the model predictions and reality correspond, then this approach could be applied to other coastal beach nourishment projects yielding better predictions of impacts and optimization of mining locations.

Timely Publication from Delaware Sea Grant on Port Security
The Delaware Sea Grant College Program has just issued a timely publication as the United States seeks to improve homeland security. Entitled "Port Security for the United States" the 80-page book is a collection of research essays looking at: 1) the vulnerability of US ports and harbors; 2) measures that can be taken to strengthen their security; 3) the interaction between the various agencies at the federal, state and local levels in establishing port security; and 4) the various legislative solutions proposed. The book is edited by University of Delaware Professor of International and Maritime Law Gerard J. Mangone who believes no avenue is more open to terrorism than American seaports.
