Abstract

The results of selected portions of an oceanographic study are presented to elucidate the advective transport process related to the site selection and design of three ocean outfalls proposed for the southern New Jersey coast. Coastal currents which would transport a dispersing effluent plume, were measured using current meters, drogues, and drifters. Using a variety of analysis techniques, both spatial and temporal variations in the coastal current regime were investigated. Differences in the local rates of advective sediment transport result in erosion or accretion of the beach and sea floor. The long-term topographic stability was investigated using historical beach and offshore profile data. The short-term stability was studied using the results of monthly beach profiles, stake elevation measurements, and sediment sample analysis.
