Evaluating Sediment Transport and Morphological Evolution of a Cross-shore Swash Zone Placement
Due: Jan 26, 2024
Crescent Beach, Indiana is regularly nourished from an upland source. The nourishment sediment is transported west by the longshore current towards Burn Harbor and Burns Small Boat Harbor navigation channels. At Burns Small Boat Harbor, the USACE plans to use an innovative dredged sediment placement technique to bring sediment dredged from the harbor to a “cross-shore swash zone” (CSSZ) placement at Portage Park. This provides a unique opportunity to investigate the feasibility of using unconfined swash zone placement into a shor...
