Abstract:

The Coastal Engineering Technical Note herein provides information about the potential use of a physical model facility dedicated to the study of inlets and equipped to represent the most significant physical processes at and around inlets. An inlet is a region connecting two or more large bodies of water by a relatively short and narrow channel. The water bodies may be an ocean and lagoon, a large lake and a bay, or a river entering a sea or lake. Many processes at inlets can be examined in a thorough and efficient manner in a dedicated inlet physical model.
