The objectives of the Sandy Duck experiment were to examine: small and medium scale sediment transport and morphology (sediment grains to 100 m scale); wave shoaling, wave breaking, and nearshore circulation; and swash processes including sediment motion . The SandyDuck experiment was conducted between July and November 1991. A short term perspective (one month after the experiment) is presented as to the success in meeting the experimental objectives, the weather conditions provided by Mother Nature, trails and tribulations, and preliminary analyses. An advantage of this experiment is that. it had the benefit. of four other large scale experiments at. this same site, so that during SandyDuck both analysis and model comparisons were performed during the experiment.
