Document Type: Journal Paper


The basic formulations for dynamic balance in design of Texas coastal inlets to permit fish passage through the littoral barriers and induce Gulf water interchange for control of bay salinities are presented. Rollover and Yarborough passes illustrate extremes of erosion and siltation. Cedar Bayou illustrates elastic limit design toward siltation.
