Abstract:

This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note CHETN describes a study to develop a cost-effective alternative deposition basin to trap material from upcoast and bypass across East Rockaway Inlet for placement on the adjacent downcoast Rockaway Beach, thus providing a reliable sediment borrow source while enhancing the hydrodynamic circulation of the inlet system. This study was supported by the US Army Corps of Engineers USACE, Engineer Research and Development Center ERDC, Regional Sediment Management RSM program and the US Army Engineer District, New York, Rockaway Beach Reformulation Study. Numerical modeling support for this study was provided by Offshore Coastal Technologies, Inc. This CHETN was extracted from US Army Engineer District, New York in preparation.
