Field data collected at Egmond, Netherlands

A three-week field campaign was carried out on Egmond Beach in October-November 2002. Field data were collected with the specific aim of testing and validating video-derived parameters.

These data included:
1) offshore wave data and water levels in the nearshore,
2) 4 full bathymetric surveys of the nearshore zone,
3) 16 full inter-tidal beach surveys with DGPS,
4) process measurements of waves currents and sediment transport processes at 3 fixed stations and 4 removable tripod stations (all stations include electromagnetic current devices, pressure device and optical backscatterance devices),
5) standard ARGUS images and timestack images. Data will be used to validate instantaneous processes and sediment transport and mean water lines etc.
