This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note CHETN summarizes comparisons of physical and numerical model wave predictions with prototype data obtained at Morro Bay Harbor Entrance, CA. Physical and numerical model investigations were initially conducted at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center ERDC as reimbursable studies for the U.S. Army Engineer District, Los Angeles, and prototype data were obtained during a monitoring effort at the site that was conducted as part of the Monitoring Completed Navigation Projects MCNP Program. Validation of physical and numerical models used in design with prototype data increases confidence levels in these tools for future applications.
