The overall goal of the Huntington Beach 2006 Experiment is improved understanding and modeling capabilities of waves, currents, and the dispersion of pollutants and phytoplankton within about 1 km of the shoreline, including the surfzone. Fixed wave and current measuring instruments will be located in the surfzone for 6 weeks and will send data to shore by cable. Lifeguards will ensure safety by manning the fixed object locations during daylight hours.
No potential for significant impacts to the environment is anticipated.
A resource ecologist will ensure avoidance of significant impacts to natural resources.
