Abstract: This technical note describes fluid mud conditions encountered at the Calcasieu Lake (Louisiana) Entrance Channel during intrusive bathymetric surveys and related investigations. The occurrence of fluid mud in navigation channels is poorly documented, but is known to cause rapid shoaling and special problems for conventional acoustic survey methods. The Calcasieu Entrance Channel is significant in these respects because fluid mud layers are thick and require large-volume dredging to maintain channel conditions.
