Abstract : This report provides basic data and summaries for the measurements made during 1985 at the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES) Coastal Engineering Research Center's (CERC's) Field Research Facility(FRF) in Duck, N.C. The report includes comparisons of the present year's data to those of previous years and cumulative statistics from 1980 to the present. Summarized in this report are meteorological and oceanographic data, monthly bathymetric survey results, samples of quarterly aerial photography, and descriptions and hourly data for 13 storms that occurred during the year. The year was highlighted by the close passage of tropical storms Ana in July and Henri in September and Hurricanes Claudette in August and Gloria in September. Waves over 6m were measured, at a location 6km from shore, during Hurricane Gloria. This report is seventh in a series of annual summaries of data collected at the FRF.
