Description: Technical note
PURPOSE: This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) summarizes comparisons of predicted and measured shoaling at Morro Bay Harbor Entrance, California. Shoaling predictions were determined by the U.S. Army Engineer District, Los Angeles, as part of the navigation improvements Feasibility Report (USAED, Los Angeles, 1991). Prototype survey data were collected in pre- and postdredge surveys and during a monitoring effort at the site that was conducted as part of the Monitoring Completed Navigation Projects (MCNP) Program. Validation of design procedures used to predict shoaling with prototype data increases confidence levels in design tools for future applications.
