Abstract : A field study was conducted at the Coastal Engineering Research Center's Field Research Facility in Duck, North Carolina, during the fall of 1985. The photopole experiment was one component of the overall study. Synchronized 16 mm movie cameras were used to film the propagation of waves past a shore-perpendicular transect of brightly painted poles. The film was developed and the photographic images were digitized to obtain the time variation of the free surface at each pole location. Time series data of free surface elevation were analyzed to compute information for characterizing the short-period incident wave field. Data collection and analysis techniques are documented as are results of the data analysis.
