After completion of a new south jetty at Barnegat Inlet, New Jersey, data collection was initiated in 1993 by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to evaluate the performance of this project. Long-term (34 days) and short-term (13 and 25 hours) velocity measurements were made with Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers. Tide measurements were made at able for the duration of the study. From the data it was found that tidal prism and bay tide amplitudes increased as the inlet system became more efficient with the new south jetty in place. It was found that flood predominance exists for spring tide conditions and ebb predominance can exist for some neap tides. In addition, over a given tidal cycle, locally flood-dominant and ebb-dominant channels exist. Overall the inlet is flood dominant in terms of current and sediment transport.
