Abstract:

A primary mission of the Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratorys CHLs Field Research Facility FRF located in Duck, NC, is to collect, analyze, and distribute coastal field measurements. The rich set of collected variables includes long-term measurement of coastal meteorology, tides, currents, waves, sediment transport, morphology, and other processes that affect the coastal environment. Most data date back to 1980, some to 1977. In addition, the FRF has hosted a series of short-term experiments that have generated additional data, techniques, software, and reports. Much of this information, including most data, is available via the web.
