Abstract

This report is the second 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 of Perdido Key between November, 1989, and September, 1990. 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; a more detailed analysis and interpretation will be presented in the lead author's Ph.D. dissertation. (313 pp.)
