Abstract : A combination office study, field data collection, and numerical model study was used to determine the principal causes of shoaling at Green Harbor, MA. Results of a year-long data collection effort which obtained directional wave information offshore of the harbor entrance revealed that the harbor is subjected to waves of over 12-sec periods. Results of the wave refraction study and sediment transport calculation formed the basis of the sediment budget which identified the major sediment sources for each of the shoals within the tidal inlet system. The conclusion of the study recommends several methods for decreasing the dredge return frequency at Green Harbor. (fr)
