Abstract : A comprehensive model which correctly reproduced tides, tidal currents, density currents, and shoaling in the entire New York Harbor complex was used to study plans for reducing maintenance dredging in the lower 11 miles of the Hudson River which annually amounts to about 1.6 million cubic yards for the Federally maintained navigation channels and 3.0 million cubic yards for the privately owned pier slips. The plans studied involved channel realignments, sediment basins, dikes, closure gates, and cross-section enlargements, and tests were made to determine plan effects on hydraulic conditions, salinity conditions, and shoaling.
