This paper has discussed and demonstrated a new capability being
implemented in the GENESIS model. Comparisons with the physical model
experiments of Hashimoto et al. (1981) indicated that the improved algorithm for
representation of T-head groins is working properly.
This paper was prepared as an activity of the Inlet Channels and Adjacent
Shorelines Work Unit of the Coastal Inlets Research Program, U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers (USACE). Permission was granted by Headquarters, USACE, to
