Abstract:

The Field Wave Gaging Program is a work unit of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Coastal Field Data Collection Program CFDCP. It is charged with collecting and distributing coastal wave data to contribute to a national wave climatology for use in planning, design, and operation of coastal projects. The development of a national gaging network has resulted from ongoing research in instrumentation design, systems analysis, and data analysis techniques. The current network provides near-real-time collection and processing of wave conditions from 36 near-shore gages and 7 deep-water buoys.
