Abstract : Under the Periodic Inspections work unit of the Monitoring Completed Coastal Projects Program, base level conditions have been established for above-water armor units on portions of the Cleveland Harbor East Breakwater. The vertical and horizontal positions of dolos and stone armor units over a cumulative 1,506 m (4,940 ft) of the breakwater have been defined through limited ground surveys, low-altitude aerial photography, and photogrammetric analysis. A database of broken dolos and stone armor units also has been established. The site will be revisited periodically in the future and the long-term structural response of the breakwater to its environment will be tracked. These periodic data sets are used to improve knowledge in design, construction, and maintenance of the existing structure as well as proposed future coastal projects. (MM)
