University of Florida, Coastal and Oceanographic Engineering Department,
This report is the third annual report in a continuing series documenting a field project
within the Gulf Islands National Seashore at Perdido Key, Florida. The field project includes
the monitoring of a number of physical parameters related to the evolution of the Perdido Key
beach nourishment project. Approximately 4.1 million m3 of dredge spoil from Pensacola Pass
were placed upon approximately 7 km of the Gulf of Mexico beaches and 3 million m3 offshore
of Perdido Key between November, 1989, and October, 1991.
Beach profile data describing the evolution of the nourished beach are included, as well
as wave, current, tide, wind, temperature, and rainfall data to describe the forces influencing
the evolution. Data describing the sediment sizes throughout the project area are also included.
A brief discussion of the data is included with an emphasis on evolution of the beach and
offshore nourishment. (Document contains 249 pages.)
