Description: Technical note
INTRODUCTION: The U.S. Army Engineer Coastal Engineering Research Center (CERC) designed, installed, and currently operates an ocean measurement system as a subtask to a work unit of the Dredging Research Program. The objective of the gaging effort at the Sand Island Berm Monitoring study at Mobile, Alabama was to monitor wave6 and current6 on shallow water dredged material disposal mound. The purpose was to correlate movement of the mound feature, as observed through periodic Burveys, with the measured hydrodynamic conditions that drive the sediment transport processes. The measurement plan was to obtain a continuous record of directional, spectral wave energy and near-bottom current velocity at a site near the peak of the mound's profile.
