3-Dimensional Hydraulic Physical Model Evaluation for the Los Angeles/Long Beach Harbor 
 

Emerald Ocean Engineering conducted a physical model study to estimate future impacts on harbor operations if crest loss continues or if the crest is restored to the design elevation. Constraints of the distorted scale model were overcome to generate incident overtopping waves that induced low frequency oscillations in the harbor. The study showed that most sites measured are insensitive to further loss of crest elevation, though some locations would experience significant increase in low frequency energy if the crest loss continues.
