|Wave buoy location||51°14.99' N 001° 29.00' E|
|Approximate water depth||10 m CD|
|Approximate spring tidal range||1.5 m|
|Storm threshold||2.5 m|
Wave parameters are recorded using a Datawell Directional WaveRider Mk III buoy. The buoy was first deployed on 06 June 2008, at which time the magnetic declination at the site was 1.3° west, changing by 0.14° east per year.
|06/12/2013||Buoy moved 500m south west of licensed position last night and appears to have settled. Will be relocated ASAP.|
|28/09/2012||Internet line repaired|
|23/09/2012||Intermittent data to website. BT engineers called to repair line|
|04/07/2012||Buoy swapped for new batteries.|
|01/02/2011||Poor data quality through much of January, EMU to swap out buoy and investigate.|
|27/10/2008||Buoy adrift, collected by local boat, serviced and re-deployed.|
