Abstract:

Under the Monitoring Completed Coastal Projects Program, an assessment of the Beach Erosion Control Project at Oakland Beach, Rhode Island was performed. The monitoring program extended over a 3-year period from April 1982 to April 1985. Monitoring included hydrographic and topographic surveys of the beach and nearshore area, aerial and ground photographs, wind data collection, littoral environment observations, sediment sampling, and site visits. Littoral transport, structure stability, and wind and wave analysis are evaluated and discussed. Data on the performance of the project and observations made in the prototype, as well as conclusions and recommendations based on the monitoring effort, are reported herein.
