Abstract : Water levels, current speed, current direction, salinity, temperature, and suspended sediment samples were obtained in the Cape Fear River estuary from mid-August 1993 through mid-October 1993. The data were collected using long-term (45-60 days) moored equipment and short-term (two tidal cycles) boat-mounted measuring and sampling equipment. The data were collected to provide synoptic information on the hydrodynamics of the estuary for use in the verification of numerical models. This report describes the equipment and procedures used in the data collection effort and presents tables and plots of the data.
