Abstract:

The report describes a spar buoy built in 1969 and modified in 1970 on the basis of operational experience. The buoy was designed as an instrument platform for air-sea interaction measurements. Convenience of setting and of instrument replacement was an important design criterion, as was instrument exposure. The report describes the mechanical design of the buoy, its performance and some operational experience with the buoy. Author
