The wave data index provides access to all instrumentally recorded wave data held in the British Oceanographic Data Centre’s National Oceanographic Database. Most sites returned data for at least one year and several substantially more than this.
It includes entries for: directional wave spectra; one-dimensional wave spectra and short-term statistics. The data were recorded by scientific and commercial organisations, using a variety of recording and processing techniques.
Within the request area users are able to select data, modify their selection and opt to receive the data as netCDF, ASCII or Ocean Data View (ODV) format.
