Description: Technical note
Background: Much of the damage to coastal structures, especially rubble-mound breakwaters and jetties, occurs to the underwater portion of the structure. Underwater damage such as scour, settlement, and scattering and breakage of armor units is not often exhibited on the surface, and damage can progress until a major structural collapse occurs. Detection of underwater damage and deterioration is cost-effective for coastal engineers in terms of planning for structure repairs and rehabilitation, and management of coastal structures over their lifetimes.
