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° 03.76' N 005° 18.44' W
|Approximate water depth||15 m CD|
|Approximate spring tidal range||4.7 m|
|Storm threshold||5.25 m|
Wave data are measured using a Datawell Directional WaveRider Mk III buoy. The buoy was deployed on 16 October 2011, at which time the magnetic declination at the site was 3.2° west, changing by 0.15° east per year.
|11/02/2018||Due to power cuts, no data was being received for a period of time. The power has now been restored.|
|27/10/2017||The buoy has been redeployed|
|11/10/2017||The buoy was set adrift and has been recovered. A replacement will the deployed ASAP.|
||Recent intermittent data caused by deterioration of antenna hub at shore station which has now been replaced.|
|22/11/2015||Lost reception from receiver station, will be rectified ASAP.|
|14/11/2014||There are problems with the power supply to the shore station|
|05/03/2014||The damaged DWR was still in situ, and has been recovered for testing. A replacement DWR has been deployed|
|06/02/2014||Some of the sensors in the buoy were badly damaged during last night's storm and although readings are still being transmitted, they are incorrect. The buoy will be replaced as soon as sea conditions permit|
|05/02/2014||Data appears to be unreliable from storm peak and is being investigated.|
|24/01/2013||Scheduled service. Repositioned to original location.|
|02/12/2012||Buoy was dragged 500m SE off its deployed position. Appears to be functioning normally and will be repositioned at earliest opportunity.|
