A coastal storm was forecasted for the weekend, so we decided to deploy some wave-current instruments in advance of the approaching storm. We have been working on a project for The Nature Conservancy to evaluate if oyster reefs created at Point Peter Road, a location of high erosion in Alligator, so this developing strong storm offered a nice opportunity to evaluate waves during a Nor'Easter. Two instruments were deployed; one behind a reef and the other nearby in an exposed setting. This was also a nice opportunity to get our new MS students, C.J. Cornette and Luke Stevens, into the field.
