Summary

Introduction High-resolution swath bathymetry and backscatter were collected in the mouth of the Columbia River (MCR) as part of the Office of Naval Research (ONR) funded River and Inlet Dynamics Experiment in 2013. The goal of the U.S. Geological Survey’s component of the research was to evaluate the various hydrodynamic and sediment transport processes in the Columbia River estuary entrance using a combination of field observations coupled with Delft3D model simulations. The MCR is a dynamic estuary inlet with large waves, large tidal currents, and a significant river discharge, resulting in strong estuarine circulation. The field component of the study consisted of an intensive in-situ experiment including bottom-mounted instrument [...]
