Abstract:

This effort provided the logistic framework for the SandyDuck 97 and Duck98 nearshore field experiments conducted during 1997 and 1998 at the Field Research Facility FRF of the US Army Corps of Engineers, Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory, located in Duck, NC . SandyDuck culminated a seven year planning effort that included a pilot experiment, DUCK94. SandyDuck was cosponsored by the Office of Naval Research, the US Army Corps of Engineers and the US Geological Survey. It involved 11 separate ONR investigations. The smaller Duck98 experiment was a test of Dr. Joan Oltman- Shays Beach Probing System. Details of individual ONR studies can be found elsewhere in this volume. This report summarizes the overall SandyDuck experiment.
