Abstract: An existing 1:75-scale undistorted hydraulic model of Noyo River and Harbor was reactivated to determine wave conditions in the entrance (for 14-ft incident waves) as a result of various breakwater configurations in Noyo Cove. The model reproduced the river from its mouth to a point approximately 15,000 ft upstream, both Noyo Harbor and Dolphin Isle Marina located on the south bank, approximately 3,500 ft of the California shoreline on each side of the river mouth, Noyo Cove, and sufficient offshore area in the Pacific Ocean to permit generation of the required test waves. A 45-ft-long wave generator and an automated data acquisition and control system were utilized in model operation.
