Abstract

The Virginia Institute of Marine Science instituted a study of the nearshore currents in the Atlantic Ocean off Virginia Beach, Virginia in December 1967 under Contract No. NAOSU P-68-1595 and continued under Contract DACW-65-69-C-0019 _through March 1970. The program was designed to determine the'net current patterns in the area and attempted to determine the physical parameters responsible. The net current patterns determined could then be utilized to determine the fate of dredge spoil material discharged from hopper dredges at a disposal site located in the vicinity of latitude 36 ° 48', longitude 75° 54', ·or 3 nautical miles offshore.
