Note that these are real-time data and are not quality-controlled. Long-range graphs are plotted from a randomised subsample of half-hourly data.
|Wave buoy location|| 50° 34.80' N 003° 25.04' W
|Approximate water depth||11 m CD|
|Approximate spring tidal range||3.9 m|
|Storm threshold||2.75 m|
Wave data are measured using a Datawell Directional WaveRider Mk III buoy. The wave buoy was deployed on 7 December 2010, at which time the magnetic declination at the site was 2.7° west, changing by 0.15° east per year.
|04/05/2017||The issues at the shorestation have been fixed and data is being received as normal.|
|03/05/2017||Due to issues at the shorestation, no data is being received|
|12/04/2017||The faulty buoy has been swapped.|
|04/04/2017||Also the wave parameters are now faulty. The buoy will be swapped ASAP.|
|21/03/2017||The thermometer is producing faulty readings.|
|01/05/2015||Due to power issues at the shore station there was another data gap over the past two days.|
|19/04/2015||Due to now resolved problems at the shore station there was a data gap over the past few days.|
|10/08/2014||A fallen tree has meant that power to the shore station has been cut|
|15/05/2014||The buoy has been serviced and re-deployed|
|14/05/2014||The buoy came adrift earlier this morning; it has been recovered and will be checked and re-deployed shortly|
|25/05/2013||After some erratic readings following the previous scheduled service, the buoy has now been swapped out for testing|
|12/02/2013||The buoy was re-deployed today, ex- Dartmouth, and accompanied throughout by local dolphin "Flipper", who took a keen interest in the entire operation|
|11/01/2013||Buoy came adrift around 0200. Now recovered to Teignmouth harbour and will be re-deployed ASAP|
|25/11/2012||Buoy was re-tuned to pick up Torbay signal after coming adrift. Now retuned to normal|
|12/05/2012||Scheduled service, buoy replaced|
