Abstract:

Wave buoy 196 measures wave height, wave direction, wave period, and water temperature in the vicinity of Ritidian Point on the north shore of Guam. Data are transmitted every half hour. Moored in water 515 meters deep, this Datawell Directional Waverider Mark III (DWR-MkIII) buoy is equipped with three accelerometers measuring north/south, east/west, and vertical displacements, allowing it to measure both wave direction and wave energy. The temperature sensor is located at the base of the 0.9 meter spherical buoy, approximately 45 cm or 18 inches below the ocean surface. Wave buoys are useful tools for forecasting local waves and are used by recreational and professional ocean users alike.

Purpose:

PacIOOS provides timely, reliable, and accurate ocean information to support a safe, clean, productive ocean and resilient coastal zone in the U.S. Pacific Islands region.

Credit:

The Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) is funded through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) as a Regional Association within the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS). PacIOOS is coordinated by the University of Hawaii School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST). Wave buoy 196 is owned and managed by PacIOOS. The NOAA Coastal Storms Program provided the initial funding to purchase this buoy. Data are managed and distributed by the Coastal Data Information Program (CDIP).
