Abstract:

A data acquisition system, using digital techniques, has been designed and tested. Using modern computer techniques, it acquires and analyzes instantaneous-synoptic measurements of the nearshore environment. Sensors include a digital wave gage with self-contained logic circuitry a vibrating- wire transducer to measure bottom pressures a Savonius current meter and a photography technique for estimating the density of suspended sediments.
