Abstract:

Wave measurements are required to observe and ultimately predict the response of the ocean to dynamic loading. While remote sensing techniques may eventually provide continuous spatial definition of wave energy for large regions, current engineering practice relies on point measurements from wave gauges. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Field Wave Gaging Program FWGP operates a nationwide network of wave gauges and serves as the Corps central, access point for all U.S. wave data. The program also supports a variety of activities to enhance the quality and efficiency of wave data collection, processing, and distribution. This is the third in a series of FWGP reports describing, through case studies, the process of selecting sites for wave gauges.
