Submarine Strain-Gage Instrumentation for Monitoring Diurnal Beach Sediment Migration
Gerald L. Shideler (2), Dennis G. McGrath (3)
A multiple strain-gage system was field tested as in situ submarine instrumentation for monitoring diurnal beach sediment migration in high-energy foreshore environments. The system has major quantitative limitations in measuring absolute sand heights, but does have potential utility as a qualitative instrument for the synoptic monitoring of tidal-induced erosional and accretionary trends. Relatively long-period trends exceeding one-quarter of a tidal cycle are effectively denoted by gage response pressure. However, gage response to shorter period sand-height variations is of more limited reliability because of extraneous pressures induced by the hydraulic regime.

The article is available through a document delivery service. Explain these Purchase Options.
|Protected Document: $10
Protected PDF Document A Protected Document provides both the reader and the publisher with maximum security and helps guard against unauthorized users. A Protected Document is delivered as a PDF file “wrapped” in a registration file (DRM Digital Rights Management file) that only allows the user to review and print the PDF from the machine to which it was originally downloaded.
