Description: special report
ABSTRACT: In November 2001, the U.S. Army Engineer District, Mobile, funded the Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory, U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) to deploy a bottom mounted wave gage in 30 ft of water approximately 1 mile offshore of Per-dido Pass, AL. On 16 September 2004, Hurricane Ivan made landfall 20 miles west of Perdido Pass as a category 3 hurricane with 120 miles per-hour maximum winds. The gage was located and recovered in August 2007 by Emerald Ocean Engineering and returned to ERDC, and the data were found to be intact. Nearshore waves from Hurricane Ivan were recorded by the wave gage. Highest significant wave height of 5.11 m occurred at 0500 GMT on 16 September 2004, with a peak period of 12.8 sec.
