The data presented here were collected onboard the NIOZ RV - Pelagia in June and October 2017. Bathymetric (multibeam), sediment and benthos samples were collected along a 9-km cross-shore transect. This transect starts at 1 km offshore of Egmond aan Zee, the Netherlands and extends to 10 km offshore.

Furthermore, an instrumented lander called the 'TU lander' was deployed on the seabed at 4km offshore. A variety of instruments were mounted on this lander, measuring tidal currents velocities, wave characteristics, small-scale seabed topography and suspended sediment concentrations.
