Abstract : The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Coastal Inlets Research Program, conducted a long-term comprehensive monitoring program at Ponce de Leon Inlet, Florida, beginning in September 1995 and ending in October 1997. The monitoring program consisted of multiple gauge sites to collect data on wave height, wave period, wave direction, water level, current velocity, and wind velocity. Additional data were obtained through bathymetry surveys, the collection of sediment samples, and inlet monitoring with video imagery and aerial photography. This report describing the available data, discusses the data collection and processing procedures used, and presents examples of the data collected during three time periods of interest.
