Method for Treating the Stochastic Nature of Water Level and Wave Climate in Determining Economically Optimal Channel Depth at Small-Boat Harbors

by Peter L. Crawford, US Army Engr, Buffalo, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '91


Engineering and economic aspects of channel depth at small-boat harbors is discussed. The concept of wave-adjusted water level is shown to be important to specifying channel bottom elevation. Methods for determining an approximate exceedance frequency distribution for wave-adjusted water level are described.
