Abstract : The long-term goal of this research is to increase our understanding of near shore (shore-line to nominally 15 m depth) fluid dynamics and to enhance our predictive modeling of waves and currents in that region. The three year objective funded in this contact was to investigate the effects of longshoreman variations of the bottom topography and short-wave field on near shore currents. This final report describes the tasks we under took to achieve our objective, the results of these tasks, the scientific impacts of our results, and lists the publications associated with this contract.
