Abstract:

The report describes a hydraulic model study of the problem of reducing to a minimum the hazardous navigation conditions at the mouth of the entrance channel, Midway Islands. An investigation of navigation conditions in the channel had been made before the model study was proposed. However, this investigation was primarily to provide navigators with information on sailing conditions in the channel during storms. The data obtained included the magnitude and direction of entrance channel currents, storm-wave characteristics at various locations around the barrier reef, records from two automatic tide gages, and meteorological data.
