Abstract : This report describes research conducted as part of the Duck94 Nearshore Processes Field Experiment, a multidisciplinary study that took place during the summer and fall months of 1994. Work consisted of reconnaissance field studies which sought to develop tools for hydrodynamic and bathymetric interpretation of nearshore sedimentary structures, using as primary data sediment cores taken in close proximity to fluid motion and bed elevation measurements. The report contains core logs of sedimentological data, which record the time, location, and orientation of all samples, as well as a description of sedimentary structures obtained by visual inspection and by x-radiographs.
