Oregon State University (2009). Sediment Transport Study Phase 1. Report by Oregon State University. pp 35.

This project was carried out collaboratively by Oregon State University (OSU) and the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) and involved baseline observations and modeling at the proposed wave energy conversion (WEC) array site near Reedsport, OR. In particular, observations and predictions of the wave conditions at the proposed site were carried out. Further, 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.
