SHORELINE CHANGE AT OREGON INLET TERMINAL GROIN

M.F. Overton, J.S. Fisher, W.A. Dennis, H.C. Miller

Abstract


The Oregon Inlet Terminal Groin was completed in 1991. The groin was built to provide protection to the bridge crossing the inlet. A detailed monitoring program has analyzed shoreline position with the use of aerial photographs collected every two months. To date, no adverse impacts of the groin have been found on the shoreline within a 6 mile distance downdrift of the groin.
