Dataset Overview | National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)

Wind speed, wind direction, air temperature, wave energy spectra, significant wave height, dominant wave period and direction, peak wave period and direction, currents, temperature, conductivity, pressure, sigma-theta, river level, sonar readings, and backscatter data collected at Myrtle Beach in the North Atlantic Ocean from instruments deployed on MOORINGS using platforms NOAA Ship NANCY FOSTER and RV DAN MOORE from 2003-10-01 to 2004-05-01 (NCEI Accession 0066109)

These bottom current, wave and associated observations were collected as part of a larger study to understand the physical processes that control the transport of sediments in Long Bay, South Carolina. This data report presents oceanographic observations made at eight locations on and near a shore-oblique sand deposit approximately 10 kilometers long, 2 kilometers wide, and in excess of 3 meters thick.
