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||53° 26.57' N 003° 02.06' W|
|Approximate water depth||5 m CD|
|Approximate spring tidal range||8.4 m|
|Storm threshold||1.6 m|
Wave data are measured using a Datawell Directional Waverider Mk III buoy. The buoy was first deployed on 06 August 2014, at which time the magnetic declination at the site was 2.31° west, changing by 0.18° east per year.
||The site (which was always intended as a short-term deployment) has now been de-commissioned|
|09/09/2014||The buoy came adrift this morning after the mooring had been cut; it has been recovered and will be re-deployed shortly|
