Description: Contract Report
Abstract: A Wave Data User's Needs Survey was performed to support the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station, Coastal Engineering Research Center's (CERC) Field Wave Gaging Program (FWGP). Survey results will contribute to design of the data management and distribution system through which FWGP data and products will become available. Approximately 510 surveys were distributed to a wide variety of possible wave information users including contacts within Corps of Engineers Division and District offices, CERC personnel, and contacts outside the Corps of Engineers. The number of returned surveys totaled 212 resulting in an approximate 42-percent return rate. Responses were optically scanned and survey data were placed into a database. Statistical analysis provided quantitative results for a variety of response categories including (a) FWGP data and product users within the Corps of Engineers but not within CERC, (b) users within CERC, and (c) users outside of the Corps of Engineers. Results are provided as graphical presentations and as detailed tabulated reports.
