This report describes the instrumentation, operation, calibration, and collected data of a 1-yr prototype wave, tide, and ship movement data acquisition program conducted by the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station and is the first of a series to be published under the general title Los Angeles and Long Beach Harbors Model Study. This model study has four major objectives 1 to determine incidence and severity of troublesome oscillations in the present harbor complex, 2 to investigate tidal circulation characteristics of the present and proposed harbors, 3 to determine the optimum plan for future expansions to provide safe and economical berthing areas, and 4 to analyze the effect proposed expansions will have on existing harbors. The first two objectives require very accurate and reliable prototype data.
