The PacIOOS wave buoy off Kalaeloa Barbers Point (CDIP #238; NDBC #51212) measures surface currents approximately 1.7 miles (2.75 km) offshore of Kalaeloa Harbor on the leeward (western) coast of Oʻahu in the State of Hawaiʻi. Data are transmitted every 10 minutes. This Datawell Directional Waverider DWR4 buoy uses an acoustic current meter (ACM) to measure the speed and direction of ocean currents at approximately 1 meter below the surface.
The Kalaeloa Barbers Point wave buoy is owned and managed by PacIOOS. Data are managed by the Coastal Data Information Program (CDIP) at Scripps Institution of Oceanography of the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). Long-term partnerships between PacIOOS, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), and CDIP enable data streaming into the PacIOOS website and PacIOOS Voyager.
