Abstract:

The following conclusions are presented 1 It is feasible to construct an offshore bar with no special dredge plant or procedures 2Sediment movement from bar will be minimal 3 It is expected that bar will induce some wave energy attenuation, thereby providing benefits to the shore zone 4 Bar will not affect normal shore processes 5 construction of bar represents a beneficial use of dredged material as compared to deposition in deep ocean waters.
