Abstract: Tests were conducted on a 1:125-scale model of Crescent City Harbor and sufficient adjacent coastline and offshore bathymetry to permit generation of waves and wave front patterns from all significant directions of wave approach to the harbor. The hydraulic model, equipped with wave-generating and wave-measuring apparatus, was used to determine the optimum length and location of an extension, or extensions, to the existing breakwater system that would reduce to a tolerable level the present adverse effects of storm waves on navigation and mooring conditions in the harbor. It was concluded that (A.) wave action could be reduced to a satisfactory level in the inner harbor basin by installation of a 400-ft-long northwesterly extension of the inner breakwater; and (B.) a 2000-ft extension of the existing outer breakwater to Round Rock, with a 1200-ft-long companion breakwater extending from Whaler Island, would substantially improve navigation and mooring conditions in the harbor.
