Abstract: During September and October 1986, the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station Coastal Engineering Research Center (CERC) hosted SUPERDUCK, a nearshore processes experiment, at its Field Research Facility located at Duck, North Carolina. The objectives of SUPERDUCK were to develop an improved understanding of coastal processes (currents, waves, sediment transport, and nearshore geomorphology) under a wide variety of conditions and to collect data essential to the development of improved numerical models of coastal phenomena. Critical to the success of SUPERDUCK was the collection of a basic suite of bathyrretric surveys and instrument measurements by CERC's Field Research Facility. The measurements included nearshore current, tide, incident directional wave, and meteorological data. In addition, a series of 14 surveys of the bathymetry in the experiment area was collected
