This website hosts images and text explaining sediment transport processes and overall morphology of Monterey Bay, California and the adjacent Salinas Valley. Images include a schematic representation of some of the major sediment transport routes for fluvial materials entering the bay and satellite images of suspended sediments during the 1998 flood. This site is designed and maintained by the Monterey ... Full description.

This website describes two turbidity events flowing down Monterey Canyon. The flows were recorded in December 2002 by a benthic mooring device located at1300 m depth. The website contains a detailed description of the events as well as graphs and illustrations of the effect of the event on instrumentation, including parameters such as flow speed and temperature.

This site provides animations and images showing a variety of depositional landforms resulting from longshore drift. Animations demonstrate both naturally occurring landforms and what happens when humans interrupt sediment transport processes through river and coastal engineering projects. The site also features a collection of coastal photographs. These resources can be integrated into lectures, ... Full description.

This narrated QuickTime movie shows footage illustrating how waves and currents shape a coastline. Topics discussed include shoreline erosion and deposition, wave energy, swells, swash, bachwash, and longshore drift. This video is from Chapter 19 (The Work of Waves and Wind) of the animations section of the Instructor Companion Site for the Wiley Higher Education textbook (ISBN 0-471-23800-7) Physical ...

The Visual Geophysical Exploration Environment (VGEE) is a software tool that is specially designed to help learners visualize complex, multi-dimensional geophysical phenomena and connect those visualizations to fundamental physical principles. The tool works with actual data sets of The El Nino Southern Oscillation. An additional data set of mantle convection will be available in the future. The ... Full description.
