Data Center Description
The Field Research Facility (FRF) located on the Atlantic Ocean
near the town of Duck, North Carolina. Open since 1977, the FRF
is internationally recognized for its coastal
studies. Instruments at the facility constantly record the
changing waves, winds, tides, and currents. Central to the
facility is a 560m(1840 ft) long pier and specialized equipment
like the CRAB, LARC, and SIS. Online visitors can take a
virtual tour of the facility, meet the staff, learn about our
research, access our most recent measurements, take a look from
our tower, and download archived data, graphs, and reports.
