#46-Port and Coastal Engineering (2005) [Bruun]
-A port refers to a location along a coast or shore that contains one or more harbors where ships can dock and transfer people and/or cargo to or from land. Port locations are selected and engineered in order to optimize access to land and to navigable water, while providing shelter from winds and waves. This JCR Special Issue focuses on some of the latest research and engineering techniques as it pertains to improving the world's ports. Dr. Per Bruun, recipient of the International Coastal Engineering Award in 2002, served as the editor for this informative Special Issue.
