The purpose of the WASP project is to capture a unique dataset of detailed wave measurements across a range of rocky platforms around the UK coastline. Using the latest wave sensors, digital video and laser scanners the project intends to map the decay in wave energy across intertidal rocky platforms. These measurements will be used to improve existing models which aim to provide a predictive tool for examining wave energy reaching our coastline which can cause erosion and cliff falls. See the project web page for more information: https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/research/coastal-processes/waves-across-shore-platforms Dataset Description: The dataset consists of six zip files. Each contains a Matlab data structure and a readme.txt file describing the data and giving details of the data collection site. Citation: Poate, T. G. and Masselink, G. (2017).
