Summary

Time-series data of water surface elevation, waves, currents, temperature, and salinity collected between 17 May 2017 and 17 Jan 2018 off the southwest coast of Puerto Rico in support of a study on circulation and sediment transport dynamics over coral reefs. The data are available in NetCDF format, grouped together in zip files by instrument site location. A README.txt file details the files contained within each zip, including the file names, type of data collected, instrument that collected the data, depth, and start and end dates/times.

Purpose

The U.S. Geological Survey and the University of Puerto Rico-Mayagüez initiated a project investigating circulation, water-column properties, and wave dynamics over the coral reefs on the southern insular shelf and upper insular slope of Puerto Rico near Guanica Bay and La Parguera in order to identify processes controlling resuspension and transport of shelf and land-sourced sediment.
