Abstract:

Wave buoy 219 measures wave height, wave direction, wave period, water temperature, air temperature, and surface currents at approximately 1.5 miles (2.4 km) offshore of Ngaraard state near the village of Elab along the northeast point of Babeldaob island in the Republic of Palau. Wave data are transmitted every half hour. Surface currents data are transmitted every 10 minutes. Water and air temperature data are transmitted every 5 minutes. Moored in water 105 meters deep, this Datawell Directional Waverider DRW4 buoy is equipped with three accelerometers measuring north/south, east/west, and vertical displacements, allowing it to measure both wave direction and wave energy. This buoy also uses an acoustic current meter (ACM) to measure the speed and direction of ocean currents at approximately 1 meter below the surface. The water temperature sensor is located at the base of the 0.9 meter spherical buoy, approximately 45 cm or 18 inches below the ocean surface. A compact air temperature (CAT4) sensor is attached to the antenna at approximately 2 meters above 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). The Government of Japan, through the Enhancing Disaster and Climate Resilience (EDCR) project, provided the initial funding to purchase and deploy the Ngaraard buoy. The EDCR was implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), in partnership with the Palau National Weather Service Office (NWSO) and PacIOOS. Data are managed and distributed by the Coastal Data Information Program (CDIP).
