Abstract:

The primary objective of this thesis is to describe the response of Oregon Inlet to processes on a high energy coast. This study will identify and analyze the major inlet-shaping factors in order to demonstrate how their interaction produces a specific inlet configuration.

The secondary goal is to analyze the effect of man-made structures on a natural inlet. The effect of Bonner Bridge as well as the probable consequences of a recently proposed jetty system will be discussed.
