Abstract: A program to 1mprove and validate nearshore circulation models was begun in 1980 at the Coastal Engineering Research Center (CERC), then at Fort Belvoir, Va. The program's major objective was to develop the capability to predict currents and sediment transport in and near the surf zone. One of the first goals of the program, to produce a state- of-the-knowledge review and an annotated bibliography, was accomplished upon publication of CERC reports MR 82-7(1) and MR 82-7(11). A second goal, to use these reports as a basis for discussing (1) needed improvements in modeling nearshore currents and (2) future directions of research, was accomplished by means of a workshop held on 9-10 June 1982. Experts working in the field were invited to make formal presentations of current model studies and to participate in discussions to define improvements needed in ( 1) nearshore current theory, (2) nearshore current modeling, and (3) theory verification , i.e. instrumentation, measurements, and experiment design. This report contains a general description of the workshop, a summary of the three working sessions, and author-provided abstracts of the formal presentations.
