Abstract: This report provides information and data documenting a coastal processes project called the SUPERTANK Data Collection Project performed at the O. H. Hinsdale Wave Research Laboratory, Oregon State University, over the period 29 July to 20 September 1991. The objectives of the project were to (a) collect data to verify and improve existing macro-scale beach profile change numerical simulation models, (b) collect data to develop advanced hydrodynamic, cross-shore sand transport, and meso-scale beach profile change numerical simulation models, (c) collect data to quantify performance of sandbars constructed offshore as a beneficial use of dredged material, (d) test and compare sediment-sensing acoustic instruments in a controlled, field-scale environment in support of dredging research, and (e) collect data to improve understanding of micro-scale fluid and sand motion. SUPERTANK was conducted as a multidisciplinary and multi-institutional cooperative effort in which the investigators shared instrumentation and expertise. NOTE: This file is large.
