Abstract:

A model of the estuary of the Columbia River was built and tested at the University of California, Berkeley, during the years 1932 to 1936 to study the effect of proposed changes in the navigation channels on the currents and sediment movement. The report deals primarily with the model itself and not with the practical problems of channel maintenance and improvement, but some information regarding the regimen of the Columbia is necessary background for understanding the problems which were to be studied in the model.
