The National Network of Regional Coastal Monitoring Programmes of England has developed a coastal wave network which concentrates on measurements in shallow water where, traditionally, there are very few long-term wave data and where the wave transformation models are generally less reliable. The main purposes of the coastal wave network are to: - Provide real-time data for use in beach operations, coastal flood forecasting and warning - Provide baseline design statistics for future coastal and marine planning projects - Enable operational assistance in coastal construction projects - Assist the monitoring of coastal processes such as beach erosion and sediment transport - Provide validation of coastal wave hydrodynamics and sediment dynamics modelling Quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC) practices are in place to provide high-quality marine observations and to ensure the value and credibility of the data to users. Quality Assurance concerns aspects such as the ch.....
