Abstract:

This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note CHETN describes channel shoaling analysis performed at Brazos Island Harbor BIH Inlet, TX. The BIH entrance channel has experienced increased frequency of shoaling in recent years that has resulted in draft restrictions. The cause of the increased shoaling is being investigated by the Brazos Island Harbor Channel Shoaling Project as part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers USACE Monitoring Completed Navigation Projects MCNP Program. MCNP is one of the USACE Navigation research programs. The analysis was performed to determine the historical dredging frequency and volume dredged compared to recent events.
