Abstract:

This report provides basic data and summaries for the measurements made during 1990 at the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station WES, Coastal Engineering Research Center CERC, Field Research Facility FRF in Duck, NC. The report includes comparisons of the 1990 data with cumulative statistics from 1980 to the present. Summarized in this report are meteorological and oceanographic data, monthly bathymetric survey results, samples of quarterly aerial photography, and descriptions of 10 storms that occurred during the year. The year was highlighted by a severe storm in October. Waves with 5-m significant height were measured 1 km from shore. This report is twelfth in a series of annual summaries of data collected at the FRF that began with Miscellaneous Report CERC-82-16, which summarizes data collected during 1977-1979. These reports are available from the WES Technical Report Distribution Section of the Information Technology Laboratory, Vicksburg, MS. A limited number of copies of Volume II Appendixes C through E were published under a separate cover.
