    One purpose of the USGS National Assessment of Coastal Change Project is to provide accurate representations of pre-storm ground conditions for areas that are designated high-priority because they have dense populations or valuable resources that are at potential risk from storm waves. Another purpose of the project is to develop a broad geomorphic coastal classification that, with only minor.   SECTIONTHREE Mississippi Wave Analysis \OCT\\ 3.

If the ship is in confined channel, this decrease in rpm can be up to 20% of the service rpm. 5. There will be a drop in ship’s speed. If the ship is in open water conditions this decrease may be up to 35%. If the ship is in a confined channel such as a river or a canal then this decrease can be up to 75%. 6.
