Abstract: Shoaling due to fine, cohesive sediment deposition in small marina-type basins is governed by basin geometry, hydrodynamic factors and sediment load in outside waters. An easily programmable computational procedure is used to estimate the annual rate of shoaling in a Florida marina with a single entrance.
