The Study of Sediment Characteristics and Nearshore Sediment Dynamicsin Coastal Tanzania
MetadataShow full item record
The nearshore morphological features, its sediment dynamics and characteristics of the Tanzania Mainland coastal stretch between the rivers Pangani and Wami were investigated. The study is a continuation of other similar studies (e.g Shaghude 2001) which provides a detail account on the nearshore sediment dynamics and its characteristics, in the Tanzania mainland coastal stretch between the rivers Ruvu and Wami, south of the present investigated area. The study is inline with the guidelines on the studies of shoreline changes in the Eastern African region, as well the study of the Eastern African database of coastal resources. The former has recommended detailed studies of shore morphological features, with updating of old information, while the later has recommended establishment and updating databases of coastal resources for the purpose of sustainable management of the existing resources. The investigated coastal stretch between the rivers Pangani and Wami broadly exhibit major nort.....
