Description Time series wave data were collected offshore of Wainwright, Alaska, from August 24 to October 02, 2009 (UTC). Measurements were collected using a 1 MHz NortekTM AWAC acoustic Doppler current profiler mounted on a frame in approximately 10 m of water. The instrument was mounted to the frame at 0.55 m off the bottom of the seafloor, and collected data in 8.53-minute bursts at 2 Hz. Significant wave heights (Hs), maximum significant wave heights (Hmax), peak and mean wave periods (Tp and Tm, respectively), and peak and mean wave directions (Dp and Dm respectively) are available in a csv file. Spectral wave data are available as a NetCDF file. [More]
