Abstract
In this study, the observed nearshore currents measured by small Lagrangian GPS drifters near the surf-zone and submerged breakwaters in Anmok were analyzed to investigate the variability of the wave-induced currents and nearshore surface currents generated by different wave and wind environments. The experiments of the AquaDrifters showed that offshore surface currents in the surf-zone were predominantly developed, especially by strong winds from land, in the opposite direction of the incoming waves. However, onshore surface currents were developed by wave-induced currents generated by the interaction of high waves from offshore with winds having a similar direction as the waves. This measurement is now used to calibrate and validate the coastal sediment modeling system.urrents generated by different wave and wind environments.
