ABOUT THE ESTIMATION OF THE NUMBER OF DAYS WITH FAVORABLE METEOROLOGICAL AND OCEANOGRAPHICAL CONDITIONS FOR ENGINEERING OPERATIONS ON THE SEA COAST AND IN ESTUARIES

P. Santema

Abstract


When an engineering work has to be carried out on the sea coast, in estuaries, etc -for instance dredging operations, reclamation and harbour works, works for coast protection, etc. it is important to know the circumstances under which the work will have to be done. More in particular it is important to know the probable number of days with favourable meteorological and oceanographical circumstances to do the work. In many cases these data are available from experience. They are lacking, however, in remote areas, where no or only a few small works have been carried out so far. In this paper the factors dominating the possibility to work are discussed. A method for the calculation of the probable number of days with favourable conditions for engineering operations on the sea coast, in estuaries, etc., in remote areas, is indicated.
