Observational data-sets for validation of coastal modules

Summary:
Observational data sets pertaining to dynamical and sedimentary regimes (some ecological) in the NW European Shelf Seas and for three (interior) coastal strips have been assembled in accessible formats for widespread dissemination and exploitation. These data sets were collected to facilitate development and evaluation of numerical models. The data sets incorporate three elements:
- header documentation containing background descriptions of objectives, sites, conditions, instruments, specific difficulties;
- 'quick-look' synthesis viewing encapsulating essential characteristics;
- raw-data.
The data are well suited for intercomparisons of models and for development of visualization tools.
