PURPOSE: This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) discusses the effects of connected and detached spurs on sediment transport and circulation in the vicinity of a coastal inlet jetty. The influence of spur orientation on the magnitude and pathways of these processes is detailed based on observations in the field and comprehensive laboratory measurements. A companion technical note, CHETN-IV-61 (Seabergh and Krock 2003), discusses existing jetty spurs in the United States and presents initial Coastal Inlet Research Program (CIRP)physical model jetty spur results.
