Abstract:

This report summarizes the field monitoring program and physical and numerical model studies that have been conducted to date for Barbers Point Harbor, Oahu, HI. This harbor was selected for study as part of the Monitoring Completed Coastal Projects MCCP Program in FY 85. The report describes the following a previous physical and numerical model studies conducted in the planning stages of the harbor, b state-of-the-art physical and numerical model studies used to estimate harbor response in the existing harbor complex, c a field monitoring program for collecting wind wave and long-period waves outside and inside the harbor, d intercomparison among previous and current model studies and field data relative to harbor response and deepwater and nearshore coupling between intragravity and wind waves, and e evaluation of the effectiveness of the existing rubble-mound wave absorber in dissipating wave energy inside the harbor. Conclusions and recommendations are presented and an extensive appendix containing monitoring program results is provided.
