Abstract

Data collected by the Coastal Processes Research Group, Plymouth University as part of Work Package 1 (WP1) of BLUEcoast, a NERC funded project (NE/N015525/1) running from 2016 to 2020. These data comprise the first annual submission for 2016 to 2017 of an ongoing surveying program, running up until and including 2020. These surveys were conducted at Perranporth Beach, Cornwall, and Start Bay, Devon, UK at different times and durations throughout 2016 and 2017. The data include: (1) quarterly single-beam echosounder bathymetric surveys, positioned using real-time kinematic (RTK) GPS; (2) annual Multi Beam Echo Sounder (MBES) bathymetric surveys; (3) monthly Real Time Kinematic (RTK) GPS/GNSS topographic surveys; (4) six-monthly (Spring, Autumn) unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) topographic surveys; (5) hourly observations from a weather station at Perranporth Beach; and (6) data from two Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs) deployed at two locations (-18 m and -26 m ODN) from Jul-Aug 2016 off the northern headland of Perranporth Beach.
