Summary

This dataset contains measured (interval=0.5 hour) water depth, wave height, and peak wave period during February 2 to April 4, 2018 at six wave gage locations along the Gandy's Beach, New Jersey in upper Delaware Bay. These data were used for the analysis of spectral evolution of wind waves along the coast in upper Delaware Bay with oyster-reef based living shoreline.
