Abstract:

This report summarizes the accomplishments of the research project Dynamics of Coastal Conditions. The research objectives were oriented toward developing predictive tools tailored to the Navys needs. Specifically, the efforts were concentrated in three major tasks aimed at predicting coastal conditions 1 Developing a nearshore circulation model 2 Developing an onshore-offshore sediment transport model, and 3 Developing a shallow water wave transformation model. During the course of research, various research tools including numerical modeling, laboratory studies and in-situ and remote-sensing field observations were employed.
