In 2005, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Ocean Service (NOS) Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS) completed the development, testing, and transition to operations of an air gap-bridge clearance measurement system for use in the CO-OPS Physical Oceanographic Real-Time System (PORTS®). The purpose of this measurement system is to provide real-time observations of the vertical distance from a bridge’s lowest steel to the mean water level surface below, commonly referred to as air gap. The observation provides vessel pilots with decision support information that can decrease the likelihood of vessel overhead allisions with bridges. This development and test effort was motivated and supported by several PORTS® customers who were concerned with growing bridge allision risks resulting from significant increase in vessel size and vessel traffic across several U.S. ports and harbors. Developed and transitioned to oper.....
