Abstract: Directional wave data were collected at Redington Shores, FL, between February 1986 and February 1987 as part of a plan to monitor the performance of a newly constructed breakwater and beach fill. A Sea Data 635-12 internally recording bottom-mounted directional wave gage was deployed in a tripod mount 4,100 ft offshore of the breakwater in 17 ft of water. Wave data were recorded for 1024 sec every 4 to 6 hr between 20 February 1986 and 23 February 1987. The data show wave heights that agree closely with the wave heights measured at the University of Florida wave gage at Clearwater, FL. The majority of waves recorded came from southerly directions. The wave heights varied from less than 0.1 m to values exceeding 1.2 m during one storm event on 21 August 1986.
