Montioring and Modeling of Tandem Breakwater System at Hammond, IN
A tandem breakwater system was constructed in 1989-90 to provide protection for a large marina at Hammond, IN, at the south end of Lake Michigan. A five year monitoring program (1993-98),...

Advances in Buoy Technology for Wind/Wave Data Collection and Analysis
Considerable advances have been made recently to reduce the cost of gathering meteorological and oceanographic data from coastal waters, especially for meteorological and oceanographic...

St. George Habor—Berm Breakwater Construction Considerations
During the period 1984-1987 three berm breakwaters with a total length of approximately 800 meters were constructed at St. George Harbor on St. George Island in the Pribil of Chain of...

Calibration of Water-Velocity Meters
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), as part of its responsibility to appraise the quantity of water resources in the United States, maintains facilities for the calibration of water-velocity...

Comparison of Hydrodynamic Parameters for a Floating Breakwater
