    Between 19th of June and 4th of July 2013 a field campaign was carried out by Flanders Hydraulics Research at Blankenberge harbour. The main objective of this campaign was to investigate the hydrodynamics around Blankenberge harbour. Six instruments were deploy in the immediate vicinity of the harbour: two of them (AWAC and Aquadopp) for 16 days and another four (drifters) for few hours.

    The present report contains a description of the experiment and the campaign, instruments’ characteristics, settings and calibration, as well as description and interpretation of the collected data. The data collected on the field regards the marine currents speed and direction, wave characteristics (height, period and direction), water pressure variations and water temperature. Data from the Meetnet Vlaamse Banken were also use for interpretation: tide, wave and wind characteristics.
