Wave action in different intertidal zones on a rocky shore in Victoria

Wave action was measured on 10 sampling occasions from April to October 1987 in the high and low intertidal zones on a rocky shore in Western Port Bay, Victoria. Forty dynamometers (20 in each zone) were deployed on each sampling occasion and left out for 2 tidal cycles (approx. 24 hours). The maximum force that was exerted on the dynamometer within this period was recorded on a spring scale. The force exerted by the waves was directly proportional to water velocity.
