ABSTRACT Li, D.; Tang, C.; Hou, X., and Zhang, H., 2019. Rapid morphological changes caused by intensive coastal development in Longkou Bay, China. Journal of Coastal Research, 35(3), 615–624. Coconut Creek (Florida), ISSN 0749-0208. Analyses of the evolution of subaqueous topography in coastal water provide an understanding of the effects of intensive coastal development on bays and estuaries. Analysis of a series of historical bathymetric acoustic surveys has revealed large changes in… 

The Effects of Reclamation Activity and Yellow River Runoff on Coastline and Area of the Laizhou Bay, China

Study on morphological changes of a bay can help to identify the effects of anthropogenic activities on coastal environment and guide the exploration of marine resources. In this paper, morphological

Morphological change detection along the shoreline of Karachi, Pakistan using 50 year time series satellite remote sensing data and GIS techniques

Abstract Changes taking place along the shoreline are attributed to several physical and dynamical processes. Sindh Coast of Pakistan particularly Karachi is continuously under the process of

Mesoscale Morphological Changes of Nearshore Sand Banks since the Early 19th Century, and Their Influence on Coastal Dynamics, Northern France

Tidal sand banks are common along the coast of northern France facing the North Sea, where they form linear shore-parallel or slightly oblique sand bodies from shallow coastal areas to depths of tens

Long-term morphological change and its causes in the Mersey Estuary, NW England

Characteristics of coastline changes in mainland China since the early 1940s

Based on multi-temporal topographic maps, remote sensing images and field surveys covering the entire coastal zone of mainland China, the coastlines of six periods since the early 1940s were

Long-term morphological change in the Ribble Estuary, northwest England

Impact of human activities on subaqueous topographic change in Lingding Bay of the Pearl River estuary, China, during 1955–2013

Between 2012 and 2013, continuous dredging and a surge of sand excavation resulted in local changes in water depth of ± 5 m/yr, far exceeding the magnitude of natural topographic evolution in Lingding Bay.
