Physical Phenomena of Harbor Entrances: Their Causes and Remedies: Defects of Present Methods of Improvement: Proceedings, American Philosophical Society (vol. 25, no. 127)
Lewis M Haupt (au)
Addresses the problem that every well-considered plan for improving the entrance to a harbor must take into account the existing physical conditions or features of the site, and the causes which have produced them. These features are composed of the land-drainage, the inner basin, the gorge, the outer basin, the bar and the ocean. In passing from the fresh to the salt water system, there may be one or more channels having some peculiar characteristics, which are not mere accidents, but the results of certain forces. Before any radical or permanent improvement can be effected it is necessary that the forces operating at any point should be fully understood, and be measured. Awarded the Magellanic Premium at the APS Meeting on 12/16/1887. Illus.
