Abstract : The existing comprehensive fixed-bed model of New York Harbor was used to determine the effects of increasing the depth of the navigation channels in Arthur Kill and Kill Van Kull from the existing -35 ft mlw depth to -42 ft mlw on tides, currents, and shoaling in the Federal navigation channels. The test results consist of measurements of tide heights, current velocities, and shoaling quantities. (Author)
