Abstract:

A digital camera on top of the Sheraton Waikiki hotel was used to photograph the shoreline of Waikiki beach on the South Shore of the island of Oahu in the State of Hawaii. The orthogonal camera view presented here is taken in the nadir direction (vertically downwards) towards the Sheraton boardwalk and its nearshore surroundings. It operated for over 4.5 years between February 5, 2009 and October 13, 2013. Capturing hourly snapshots at a set vantage point during the local daytime hours of 6:00 AM or 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM, these images are useful for tracking beach dynamics such as wave run-up, sand movement, and turbidity plumes over time. The camera was mounted on top of a 3 meter wall extending above the roof surface for a total height of 93 meters above ground level or 96 meters above mean sea level. See also BEACHCAM-001 for an oblique camera view from the same location pointing southeast towards Diamond Head.

Purpose: PacIOOS provides timely, reliable, and accurate ocean information to support a safe, clean, productive ocean and resilient coastal zone in the U.S. Pacific Islands region.
