Description: Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note
Purpose: This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) summarizes selected regional coastal sediment processes that may influence the design, operation, and maintenance of engineering projects. Various regional mechanisms that significantly control or restrict coastal and inlet sediment transport are discussed. Examples are given from different US coasts where regional processes and controls determine the sediment transport pattern, associated shoreline evolution, and navigation channel performance. NOTE: This is a revised edition of a CHETN that was originally released in March of 2002.
