Buck Island, U.S. Virgin Islands, wave and water level data, 2015

Metadata Updated: October 28, 2023

Time series data of wave height and water surface elevation were acquired for 147 days at four locations off of the north coast and four locations off the south coast of Buck Island, U.S. Virgin Islands, in support of a study on the coastal circulation patterns and the transformation of surface waves over the coral reefs. The relative placement of sensors on the reefs were as follows: BUI15S1T and BUI15N1T – fore reef BUI15S2T and BUI15N2T – outer reef flat BUI15S3T and BUI15N3T – middle reef flat BUI15S4T and BUI15N4T – inner reef flat
