Abstract:

It is apparent that the changes in river sections that would result from extreme canalizing of the estuary would not induce the necessary downstream shift of the shoaling due to the effect of salinity density currents. Extensive training works to reduce the flow area also were ineffective in moving the several shoaling areas downstream enough to be of benefit in reducing the cost of maintenance. Since the shoals cannot be moved out of the present high shoaling areas with the aid of training works regardless of cost, it will be necessary to develop improved and more efficient methods of dredging and disposing of material from the existing system.Author
