SEDMEX: Measurements of morphodynamics of a sheltered beach along the DutchWadden Sea
Field measurements from SEDMEX campaign conducted September - October 2021 at the Prins Hendrik Zanddijk: a man-made beach on the leeside of the barrier island Texel, bordering the Marsdiep basin that is part of the Dutch Wadden Sea. the SEDMEX campaign aims to gain new insights into the driving processes behind sheltered-beach morphodynamics. The data set consists of (1) current, wave and sediment-concentration measurements from a dense cross-shore array and a 3 km spanning alongshore array, (2) sediment composition from beach surface samples, (3) high-temporal-resolution RTK-GNSS beach profile measurements, (4) a pre-campaign spatially covering bathy-topo map and (5) meteorological data.
