Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs) and Pressure loggers were deployed at Crocker Reef, a senile (dead) barrier reef located in the northern portion of the Florida Reef Tract during December 12, 2014 to January 30, 2015. A pressure logger was deployed in the deepest part of the fore reef at a water depth of 14 m. This logger configured to measure pressure at a rate of 2 Hz to obtain wave statistics. An Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler, two SonTek Argonaut-XR Current Profilers, and a Nortek Aquadopp current meter were deployed at different locations on the reef flat and configured to measure three-dimensional flow velocities throughout the water column. Current measurements were taken at a rate of 1 Hz for 120 s every 10 minutes; each 120 s sampling was internally averaged to provide data at 10 minute resolution.
