Description: Technical report
Under the Periodic Inspections work unit of the monitoring Completed Navigation Projects Program, precise locations of dolos armor units on the Manasquan Inlet, New Jersey, jetty heads were reestablished and compared with data obtained previously. The vertical and horizontal positions of the dolosse were defined through limited ground surveys, low-altitude aerial photography, and photogrammetric analysis. Areas at the seaward heads of the structures were recently rehabilitated with CORE-LOC armor units. Base data were obtained relative to the precise vertical and horizontal positions of the CORE-LOCs. A broken armor unit survey also was completed. The site will be revisited periodically in the future, and the long-term response of the breakwater to its environment will be tracked. These periodic data sets will be used to improve knowledge in the design, construction, and maintenance of the existing structure as well as future coastal projects.
