Abstract : Tests were conducted on a 1:125-scale model of Crescent City Harbor and sufficient adjacent coastline and offshore bathymetry to permit generation of waves and wavefront patterns from all significant directions of wave approach to the harbor. The hydraulic model, equipped with wave-generating and wave-measuring apparatus, was used to determine the optimum length and location of an extension, or extensions, to the existing breakwater system that would reduce to a tolerable level the present adverse effects of storm waves on navigation and mooring conditions in the harbor.
