Intensive sampling of beach variables was undertaken during a 30-day period in August and September, 1969, at Virginia Beach, Virginia. The purpose was to investigate the water table of a marine beach and to clarify the interaction of the water table and several process varibles of the beach-ocean-atmosphere system. This report describes the methods of measurement and tabulates the values obtained for the following variables breaker height, breaker period, trough-to-bottom depth in front of a breaking wave, breaker steepness, breaker power, position of the limit of swash run-up, position of the outcrop of the water table on the foreshore, slope of the foreshore, water table elevations in each of 13 wells, beach elevations, barometric pressure, rainfall, and still-water leve.
