Dataset for "Energy dissipation in the inner surf zone: new insights from LiDAR-based roller geometry measurements"

This dataset includes the LiDAR surface elevation measurements from which wave and surface roller properties were extracted following the methodology described in the article "Energy dissipation in the inner surf zone: new insights from LiDAR-based roller geometry measurements", submitted to Journal of Geophysical Research: Oceans. The complete wave and roller dataset is provided along with all the data used to produce the Figures of the article.
