Abstract: Los Angeles and Long Beach Harbors share a common breakwater system which encloses one of the largest harbor systems in the world. In response to the expansion of ocean-borne world commerce, the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach are conducting planning studies for harbor development in coordination with Los Angeles District (SPL). The Coastal Engineering Research Center (CERC) acquired current and tide data in Los Angeles and Long Beach Harbors from 1 June to 3 August, 1983, from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Wind data from Long Beach Airport were also obtained. The data were analyzed and used to examine effects of wind on tidal circulation.
