Description: Technical note
Introduction: Dredging is performed at many tidal inlets around the United States to provide for safe navigation from the open sea to, usually, a harbor or waterway in the backbay area. Dredging is expensive, and a major goal of much ongoing research is to determine ways of reducing the cost of maintaining safe navigation channels through tidal inlets. The purpose of this CETN is to show how historic data can be evaluated to provide guidance on whether changes in navigation channel alignment or dimensions can reduce the amount of material needing to be dredged.
