Hanalei Bay, Kauai tide, and directional current and wave data collected from Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP), from 08 June 2006 to 05 September 2006 (NODC Accession 0067695)

browse graphicPreview graphic
High-resolution measurements of waves, currents, water levels, temperature, salinity and turbidity were made in Hanalei Bay, Kauai,Hawaii during the summer of 2006. A series of bottom-mounted instrument packages were deployed in water depths of 10 m or less. These data support the ongoing process studies being conducted as part of the US Geological Survey Coastal and Marine Geology Program's Pacific Coral Project. Finalized data were provided in ASCII format for the waves, currents, and water levels. Other variables are summarized in graphics and described in a technical report.
