The continuous measurements of waves, currents, tides from these instrument deployments, provide information on nearshore circulation and the variability in these hydrodynamic properties over the coral reefs of Waiakane. These data will be used to study the transformation of waves over the reef and how this process contributes to the shoreward migration of coral reef-derived carbonate sediment.
