The Tillamook Bay model was of the fixed-bed type, constructed to scales of 1500 horizontally and 1100 vertically, and reproduced Tillamook Bay, Oregon, in its entirety and a suitable area of the Pacific Ocean. The model was equipped with the necessary appurtenances for accurate reproduction and measurement of tides, tidal currents, salinity intrusion, freshwater inflow, shoaling distribution, and other significant prototype phenomena. The purposes of the model study was to determine the optimum alignment and length of south jetty at the entrance to Tillamook Bay. Model verification tests indicated that the model hydraulic and salinity regimens were in satisfactory agreement with those of the prototype for comparable conditions.
