AWAC Deployment

Posted by in Field Photos

In July 2014 I (with the help of many others) deployed a mooring in Newport, Oregon from the R/V Elakha in order to measure in-situ hydrodynamics on the shoreface offshore of South Beach State Park. This was part of a study investigating onshore sediment transport processes and mechanisms of sandbar welding to the coast.

Many thanks to NortekUSA for loaning a 1 MHz Acoustic Wave and Current Profiler (AWAC) as part of their graduate student equipment grant!
