Following a discussion at ICRS 11, we are in process of compiling a database of hydrodynamic data collected in Coral Reef Systems, around the world, with special emphasis on systems with good topographic data. The database will contain only general statements about the data (may be even metadata) and not the data themselves. Inclusion in the database does not, in any way, imply that the data are available. Where studies have been published, they will be referenced in a forthcoming review of Hydrodynamic/Topographic Data for Coral Reef Systems.
We have already an impressive list of journal articles, technical reports, books/chapters, and abstracts, but I am sure there is much more of which we are unaware. It is particularly valuable if the hydrodynamic data (water flow, waves, temperature, salinity, turbulence etc) are accompanied by topographic/bathymetric data and especially if there are concomitant biological , chemical or sediment data.
If any listers know of references of which we may possibly be unaware, or can merely bring their own work (papers, reports, presentations, books etc) to our attention, so that we are sure of their inclusion, we would be very grateful.
Thank you very much in advance for any help,
