Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
This dataset contains data collected in Saint Martin, Caribbean. Vegetation surveys were conducted before and after the 2017 Hurricane season in which category 5 Hurricane Irma directly hit the island. The 1D wave propagation model, XBeach, was used to model wave propagation over the seagrass meadow in Baie de L'embouchure in normal and hurricane-like conditions. Biomechanical measurements were conducted on the dominant seagrass and algae species within the meadow to investigate their tolerance to drag forces.
