The structure of the new breakwater named cylindrical floating breakwater (CFB) consists of two parts: a main body of rigid cylinders, and a flexible mesh cage containing a number of suspending balls that are intended to absorb the wave energy into their mechanical by:

    The Cape Fear River basin is the largest in North Carolina. Which statement BEST describes a river basin? A) River basins are tributaries that drain into a much larger water shed. B) A river basin is a large channel of water that is always flowing down a slope. C) It contains a major river and all the streams and creeks that flow into that river. The shorebreak here is under threat from a beach construction project, which will include six T-head jetties. However, about 1/4 mile offshore, an outside bar produces long, hollow lefts when a big NE swell combines with a low incoming tide. There can also be some clean, uncrowded peaks on a SE windchop swell on the north side of the inlet at lower l example of beach replenishment.

Shoreline change spanning twenty-four years was assessed along the coastline of Cape Hatteras National Seashore, at Hatteras Island, North Carolina. The shorelines used in the analysis were generated from georeferenced historical aerial imagery and are used to develop shoreline change rates for Hatteras Island, from Oregon Inlet to Cape Hatteras.

Floating breakwaters are inventoried. The various types are separated into 4 general categories, which are Box, Pontoon, Mat, and Tethered Float. The Tethered Float was identified as a special cate.

South of Murrells Inlet, there is clear evidence of long-term net longshore transport towards the south. North of Murrells Inlet net transport appears to be more variable.

Large losses occur where sediment moving alongshore is trapped by tidal inlets (Murrells and Little River), accumulates in a large spit complex (North Island), or exits the.
