One of the most important parts of developing numerical models of the coast is good wave and current data.
Effective data collection will involve deployment of wave/current meters (also records water levels (i.e. tides)) at 3 sites with sediment traps (3 heights) attached.
The instruments will be deployed for 8 weeks.
At this stage it is unknown if local wind data is available. These data will be collected using an onsite system (e.g. a windbird) if no data exists.
CCPA plans to conduct this research as early in 2012 as feasible.
Results will be published on this website.
