Abstract:

Instrumentation has been designed, developed, and operated to measure the statistics of wave-height fluctuations as well as the spatial-attenuation factor of capillary waves. A microwave radiometer was provided to measure the thermal emissions of the ocean surface at 8.9 GHz. This report highlights some of the data collected during the latter part of August 1972 on the NUC oceanographic tower.
