Abstract:

This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note CHETN describes methods and techniques for acquiring measurements of waves, currents and suspended sediment from high-energy wave and current environments. The case study described involved measurements obtained in proximity to a large jettied inlet. Two techniques are described 1 Deployment of instrumented platforms in a high-energy surf zone, and 2 Deployment and recovery of instrumented tripods near a submerged structure using a Sikorsky HH-60J Jayhawk helicopter.
