Abstract : The U.S. Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory (CHL), is conducting a study of the entrance to Humboldt Bay, CA, as a part of the Coastal Inlets Research Program (CIRP). The data review contained herein provides an inventory and review of available data to support the study. The data review includes historical and recent physical processes and engineering data describing Humboldt Bay and the adjacent littoral cell. The focus is on data and data sources related to physical oceanography (tides, wind, waves, currents, hydrographic structure, bathymetry), coastal processes, tidal inlet and beach dynamics, sand supply and budgets, structural modifications controlling the inlet entrance configuration, and dredging of the navigation channel.
