Abstract:

Cross-berth circulation and discrete water properties were monitored during a 2-day period at Charleston Naval Station. The resulting measurements were used to evaluate the suitability of using scour jet arrays or barrier curtains to reduce the rate of sedimentation in berthing areas. However, additional study of these technologies is recommended in particular, full-scale tests of a spatial scour jet array and barrier curtain should be conducted at separate berths. Keywords River currents Temperature Salinity Suspended sediments.
