Abstract : This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering technical note (CHETN) describes a regional application of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) Coastal Modeling System (CMS). This application spans three counties and over 70 miles of southwest Florida shoreline along the Gulf of Mexico. The study region is entirely within the USACE Jacksonville District (SAJ) jurisdiction and includes the coastline from Clearwater Beach in Pinellas County, FL, to Venice Beach in Sarasota County, FL (Figure 1). Active federal projects include the Pinellas County Shore Protection Project (SPP), Tampa Harbor Deeping Project, Manatee County SPP at Anna Maria Island, the City of Sarasota SPP at Lido Key, Sarasota County SPP at Venice Beach, and a number of federally authorized channels. Local projects exist as well in Longboat Key and at Siesta Key. This effort was supported by SAJ and ERDC through the USACE Regional Sediment Management (RSM) Program.
