Pagination or Media Count:
This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note CHETN presents a generalized conceptual framework of mechanisms which contribute to channel shoaling in different areas of inlets. This information provides a common nomenclature and classification scheme for grouping various types of channel shoaling. The framework serves as a base for future modification and expansion as the Coastal Inlets Research Program CIRP, Diagnostic Modeling System DMS research work unit, and other research experiences develop methods for analyzing, predicting, and treating various types of channel shoaling problems.
