Summary

Time series data of water surface elevation and wave height were acquired at ten locations for 517 days (in three separate deployments) off the north coast of Roi-Namur Island, Kwajalein Atoll, Marshall Islands, in support of a study on the coastal circulation patterns and the transformation of surface waves over the coral reefs.

Purpose

The continuous measurements of waves, currents, tides from these instrument deployments, provide information on nearshore circulation and the variability in these hydrodynamic properties over the coral reefs of Kwajalein. These data will be used to study the transformation of waves over the reef and how this process contributes to the shoreward migration of coral reef-derived carbonate sediment.
