Baseline observations and modeling at the proposed wave energy conversion (WEC) array site near Reedsport, OR are recorded. A baseline bathymetry survey of the nearshore area shoreward of the site was collected along with regular observations of the topography and shoreline, and video observations of the submerged sand bar features. The observations help characterize the baseline variability at the site and the adjacent beach. Further, the wave observations and predictions inform the wave energy developers about the expected local conditions. Report includes beach and shoreline morphodynamics, direct survey as well as video observations of the submerged bathymetry, wave modeling, and in-situ and radar observations of the waves.
