Abstract or Summary
  • This project was carried out collaboratively by Oregon State University (OSU) and the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) and involved continuation of the beach monitoring program begun in summer 2009 to determine baseline conditions and beach variability at the site of the planned Reedsport wave energy conversion array. In effect this project was phase two of the work documented in the December 2009 OWET report ‘Baseline Observations and Modeling for the Reedsport Wave Energy Site’ by Ozkan-Haller et al. Wave energy conversion devices are expected to reduce wave energy in their lee. Multiple devices can create rhythmic wave height variations shoreward of the array of devices that could significantly alter the natural range of beach morphodynamics. The over-arching objective of this study is to understand if these variations cause changes in the surf zone circulation patterns and alter the shoreline configuration. This project aims to extend the field-based beach monitoring program begun in spring 2009 to document changes to the beach and nearshore bars, and enables comparisons of the measured changes with the natural envelope of variability determined for the Reedsport site and elsewhere.
