Abstract : This report is Part 4 of four parts that describe physical and functional characteristics of representative ports and port facilities. Port capacities, harbor characteristics, supplies and utilities, landing, storage, clearance, naval, and repair and maintenance facilities are described in detail for each of the ports studied. Anticipated port development programs are also included. The material presented for these representative ports is arranged so that it can be used for conducting detailed vulnerability studies. This document describes functions and operations carried out within several classes of ports, categorized by the primary type of cargo handled, and the results of preliminary functional vulnerability analyses for each class of port. Brief reference is made to container facilities; however, NWC TP 5590 (Ship and Port Developments, 1967 Through 1972) provides a comprehensive study of the phenomenal growth of containerization and other improved modes of cargo handling.
