Pagination or Media Count:
A numerical wave refraction and shoaling analysis was conducted to transfer wave hindcast data from deep water to the entrance of Tillamook Bay. Also included was a general description of the transformation of surface gravity wave in shoaling water and the effect of tidal currents on gravity wave. No specific conclusions were required of the study but the data was used by the Portland District and North Pacific Division to access navigation hazards at the entrance between the existing north jetty and the proposed south jetty extension.
