Abstract : This report provides detailed information on the rebuilding of the Buhne Point marine beach, the construction of retaining structures. and the establishment of native dune vegetation to prevent wind erosion. Appendices document physical and numerical model studies done at the Waterways Experimentation Station for the structures and beach, as well as the post-construction and post-planting monitoring programs. Buhne Point is located on the east shore of Humboldt Bay, California. In Phase III, a 1,050' shore connected, rubble mound breakwater was constructed on the northerly face of the beach. The Phase I timber groin and breakwater was given an additional 425' arched extension. These appendices include: Phase III basis for design; Foundation and bedding layer design; and Design for the prevention of shoreline erosion at Buhne Point.
