Abstract: This report, the 21st in a series under the General Investigation of Tidal Inlets program, summarizes an investigation on the stability of selected US tidal inlets. The study developed methods for describing stability characteristics to be used later in relating the characteristics to the morphology and hydraulics of inlet systems. The methods were applied to analyze the stability of a wide range of inlets in order to develop a database on natural variations in inlet stability, and a possible classification of inlets based on their stability was examined for interrelationships. Regional variation in stability was analyzed. It should be noted that this report does not attempt to relate inlet stability to the morphology or hydraulics of inlet systems. Rather, this report is restricted to analysis of the stability characteristics of inlets.
