Abstract: This report provides basic data and summaries for the measur ements made during 1988 at the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES), Coastal Engineering Research Center's (CERC's) Field Research Facility (FRF) in Duck, NC. The report includes comparisons of t he present year's data with cumulative statistics from 1980 to the present. Summarized in this report are meteorological and oceanographic data, monthly bathymetric survey results, samples of quarterly aerial photography, and descriptions of 16 storms that occurred during the year. The year was highlighted by a severe storm in April that destroyed several oceanfront cottages. Waves with 5-m significant height were measured 6 km from shore. This report is tenth in a series of annual summaries of data collected at the FRF that began with Miscellaneous Report CERC-82-16, which summarizes data collected during 1977-1979. These reports are available from the WES Technical Report Distribution Section of the Information Technology Laboratory, Vicksburg, MS.
