Abstract: This report provides basic data and summaries for the measurement made during 1992 at the U.S. 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 the present year's data with cumulative statistics from 1980 to present. Summarized in this report are meteorological and oceanographic data, monthly bathymetric survey results, samples of biannual aerial photography, and descriptions of 12 storms that occurred during the year. The year was highlighted by a major storm in mid-December which lasted for approximately 7 days. Waves with 4.7-m significant height were measured 6 km from shore. This report is the 14th in a series of annual summaries of data collected at the FRF that began with Miscellaneous Paper 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.
