Abstract:

The report describes the design, construction and expected performance of a stable instrument buoy, which is capable of being anchored in water depth between 20 and 200 meters. Roll stability and minimization of exciting forces due to waves is to be achieved by an extremely tight moor rather than by a large mass or a very low center of gravity. The construction and the coding of observations of a wave recorder are also described. Author
