These bottom current, wave and associated observations were collected as part of a larger study to understand the physical processes that control the transport of sediments in Long Bay, South Carolina. This data report presents oceanographic observations made at eight locations on and near a shore-oblique sand deposit approximately 10 kilometers long, 2 kilometers wide, and in excess of 3 meters thick.
