This book contains more than 300 papers presented at the 28th International Conference on Coastal Engineering, held in Cardiff, Wales, in July 2002. It is divided into five parts: coastal waves; nearshore currents, swash, and long waves; coastal structures; sediment transport; and coastal morphology, beach nourishment, and coastal management. The papers cover a broad range of topics, including theory, numerical and physical modeling, field measurements, case studies, design, and management. Coastal Engineering 2002 provides engineers, scientists, and planners with state-of-the-art information on coastal engineering and coastal processes.

Coastal structures are an important component in any coastal protection scheme. They directly control wave and storm surge action or to stabilize a beach which provides protection to the coast.This book provides the most up-to-date technical advances on the design and construction of coastal structures and sea defenses.Written by renowned practicing coastal engineers, this edited volume focuses on the latest technology applied in planning, design and construction, effective engineering methodology, unique projects and problems, design and construction challenges, and other lesions learned.Many books have been written about the theoretical treatment of coastal and ocean structures. Much less has been written about the practical practice aspect of ocean structures and sea defenses. This comprehensive book fills the gap. It is an essential source of reference for professionals and researchers in the areas of coastal, ocean, civil, and geotechnical engineering.
The case looked like the plot line of Fifty Shades of Grey with a plot twist of murder. Morgan Jane Smith and Darryl Smith shared an affinity for bondage. For over ten years, she was at his beck and call to do whatever he pleased. But Darryl grew tired of Morgan's slavish ways and found a new girlfriend in Andrea Stranko. Obsessed with Darryl, Morgan would not take the break-up laying down. She took a 20-gauge shotgun and stalked the couple down, taking out her jealousy on the innocent Andrea. But it was the details of Morgan's indulgence in bondage and sex games that added to the lurid nature of the murder. What psychological scars led to Morgan, the mother of a twelve-year-old girl, to throw her life away over a love triangle? Could this tragedy have been prevented?
