Human population density in the coastal zone and potential impacts of climate change underscore a growing conflict between coastal development and an encroaching shoreline. Rising sea-levels and increased storminess threaten to accelerate coastal erosion, while growing demand for coastal real estate encourages more spending to hold back the sea in spite of(More)
4 Humans are increasingly altering the Earth's surface, and affecting processes that shape and 5 reshape landscapes. In many cases, humans are reacting to landscape-change processes that 6 represent natural hazards. Thus, the landscape is reacting to humans who are reacting to the 7 landscape. When the timescales for landscape change are comparable to those(More)
Developed coastal areas often exhibit a strong sys-temic coupling between shoreline dynamics and economic dynamics. " Beach nourishment " , a common erosion-control practice, involves mechanically depositing sediment from outside the local littoral system onto an actively eroding shoreline to alter shoreline morphology. Natural sediment-transport processes(More)
INTRODUCTION Oral health is suspected to be linked to heart disease since species of bacteria that cause periodontitis and dental caries have been found in the atherosclerotic plaque in arteries in the heart. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to characterize the oral microbiome in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and in a patient with dental(More)
