Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Estuarine and Coastal Modeling

Abstract: This paper compares information presently available concerning the maximum currents between the I-664 Channel Islands in Hampton Roads, Virginia, before and after construction of the islands. This comparison is based on the results of a previous Waterways Experiment Station (WES) physical model study without the I-664 Channel Islands, and a previous WES 2-D numerical model study with and without the I-664 Channel Islands and field measurements taken by the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS).
