Description: Miscellaneous paper
Abstract: The Coastal Engineering Research Center of the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES) was requested by the US Army Engineer District, Portland (NPP) to model the coastal current regime in the vicinity of the Yaquina Bay entrance, with the major emphasis on tidal and wave-induced currents at the north jetty tip. This report describes the application of the WES Implicit Flooding Model (WIFM), the Regional Coastal Processes Wave Propagation Model (RCPWAVE), and the• wave-induced current model (CURRENT) to the Yaquina Bay area. The purpose of the report was to provide design guidance to NPP for the rehabilitation of the collapsed, outer portion of the north jetty. Alternative plans for rehabilitation of the north jetty were modeled to determine their effectiveness in altering the current patterns near the north jetty tip.
