The Port of Oakland and the Oakland Inner and Outer Harbors are located on the eastern side of the San Francisco Bay. The Port is a transportation and distribution center that provides access to marine terminals specializing in containerized shipments. The tidal range is about 6.4 ft depth. Navigation problems arise from the cross currents or shear at the entrance to the Inner and Outer Harbor and the size of the turning basin for each harbor. A deepening of the existing Inner and Outer Harbor channels is proposed. Size constraints in the area made it necessary to provide careful modeling and analysis.
