The influence of private legislation on a development brief, Port Edgar, South Queensferry, Edinburgh -- Leisure harbours as an economic resource - planning problems in Sardinia -- Evolution of a harbour - planning, construction, and the resulting impacts of a recreational boating facility upon a small community in Canada. Sect. 3: Environmental and water quality aspects. Green can mean gain for marina developers -- Environmental aspects in the use of sea outfalls - a sensitivity analysis -- Water quality in marina basins - sources of pollution and practical mitigation -- The impact of ship based pollutants and their implications in the marina environment -- Rehabilitation of Lake Gregory, Sri Lanka. Sect. 4: Site investigation of water level control. Vilamoura marina - hydraulic aspects of lock design -- The river Tawe barrage -- Design of sector gates for locks. Sect. 5: Wave modelling and analysis. An efficient and cost effective wave absorber for marinas -- Wave propagation over sloping bottom and submerged breakwaters -- Wave diffraction patterns around isolated offshore structures -- Wind wave forecasts for extended spans of time -- Wave propagation in a small harbour - a numerical model study. Sect. 6: Flushing characteristics and water circulation. Numerical model study of tidal currents for a port development using weakly reflective open boundary conditions -- Studies for improving flushing ability of Marmaris Marina -- Hydraulic mini-model studies -- Gulf of La Spezia - an analysis of the mechanisms of water exchange between the inner gulf and the open sea. Sect. 7: General modelling of marinas and marine structures. Hydraulic modelling studies for the Hartlepool Marina development -- Numerical modelling of bathymetric variability -- Improvements to marina design by physical modelling -- Model tests of floating breakwaters -- Applications of single layer armour units in the construction of breakwaters. Sect. 8: Marina developments. The development of the national system of leisure harbours in Greece -- Victoria & Alfred waterfront - from concept to reality -- Preliminary design for a marina in Arrecife Lanzarote. Sect. 9: Design and construction. The use of gabions in marinas, docks and canals -- Zante Island - a third generation marina - design and construction problems -- On the design and development of Qatif marina in the south of Israel -- Lessons from hurricane Hugo - marina planning, design and operations in hurricane zones. Sect. 10: Breakwaters. Approximation of wave forces on arrays of submerged circular breakwaters -- Reef breakwater design for Lake Michigan marina -- Traditional concrete vs sand concrete for breakwater armouring. Sect. 11: pontoon services and marina maintenance. Water and electrical supply for marinas - an Italian survey on actual consumption towards updated design guidelines -- Dredging as an influence on the redevelopment of Port Edgar, South Queensferry, Edinburgh -- The use of floating pontoons for the construction of Italian marinas -- Durban's marina extension - a modular flexible design using fasttrack methods of construction.
