Abstract: This report provides basic data and summaries for the measurements made during 1983 at the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES) Coastal Engineering Research Center's (CERC's) Field Research Facility (FRF) in Duck, N. C. The report includes comparisons of the present year's data to prior years, and cumulative statistics from 1980 to the present. Summarized in this report are meteorological and oceanographic data, monthly bathymetric survey results, samples of quarterly aerial photography, and descriptions and hourly data for the storms that occurred during the year. Wave conditions were the highest since measurements began at the FRF. The year was highlighted by 24 storms that included the close passage of Tropical Storm Dean in September. This report is the fifth in a series of annual summaries of data collected at the FRF; the first, which summarized data collected during 1977-1979, was published as CERC Miscellaneous Report 82-16; the second, which summarized data collected during 1980, was published as CERC Technical Report 84-1; the third, which summarized data collected during 1981, was published as CERC Technical Report 85-3; and the fourth, which summarized data collected during 1982, was published as CERC Technical Report 86-5.
