Description: Technical Report
Abstract: The Directorate of Civil Works of the US Army Corps of Engineers, the US Army Engineer District, Mobile, and the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station, Coastal Engineering Research Center, are engaged in a cooperative effort to construct and monitor experimental submerged berms on the open seafloor offshore of Sand Island, AL. Described herein are the experimental placement methods used along with a comparison between expected results and those actually achieved. Background site information and measured environmental conditions are summarized. Results of the first year's monitoring are discussed. Results of continued monitoring will be included in later reports.
