Description Three Acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCP), a current meter and a pressure logger were deployed at Crocker Reef, a senile (dead) barrier reef located in the northern portion of the Florida Reef Tract from December 12, 2014 to January 30, 2015 to quantify flow characteristics in various sub-regions. A RBR pressure logger was deployed on the fore reef and configured to measure pressure at a rate of 2 hertz (Hz). The logger was positioned at a water depth of 14 meters, the deepest part of the fore reef) in order to obtain wave statistics measurements. [More]
