Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

This accession contains Wave Energy (wave height and wave period) Data from Hawaiian coast collected over 13 years in North Pacific Ocean, NE Pacific (limit-180). Total three sets of Wave Energy Data comprise this accession. The first set was collected from Barbers Point, Oahu, Hawaii (21:19:4 n, 158:7:2w). These data are part of a series spanning 6/29/86-1/25/90. The second set was collected from Barking Sands, Kauai (22:08:9 n, 158:48:2w). These data are part of a series spanning 10/21/82-09/16/93. The third set was collected from Makapuu, Oahu, (21:19:7 n, 157:35:1w). These data are part of a series spanning 08/17/81-03/23/94. Data were submitted through Pat Caldwell of NODC from Dr. Bill O Rielly of Scripps Coastal Data Information Program. Each file in this series corresponds to data collected by a single instrument installed for a given period of time. Each file has been assigned a separate NODC reference number. The documentation includes the instrument, location, dates, and depth. Significant wave height was measured as cm, significant wave period was measured in seconds.
