A distorted-scale hydraulic model investigation was performed to determine the potential effect, if any, of a proposed offshore nuclear power plant on shoreline evolution. Model measurements of current patterns with and without the breakwater were directly compared and measurements of breaking wave characteristics height, depth, and angle to shoreline with and without the breakwater were used to calculate and compare longshore transport rates in the potentially affected areas. It was concluded that the proposed construction would have a negligible effect on future shoreline evolution. Author
