A Determination of the Energy Flux Constant From Dredge Records

Fernando J. Caviglia, Jorge L. Pousa, Nestor W. Lanfredi


Simultaneous wave field measurements, dredge and bathymetric records were made in the vicinity of Mar del Plata (Province of Buenos Aires, Argentina) harbour's entrance for 13 months. These data were used to calculate the dimensionless coefficient. K in the energy flux method, the average being 0.21. Longshore littoral transport was estimated in 390,000 m3/y.
