Measurements are taken using a Datawell Directional Waverider Buoy Mk III since November 2005 when the magnetic declination at the site was 2.6 ° west, changing by 0.15 ° east per year.  The buoy replaced a Mk II (non-directional) Waverider which was first deployed in March 1996.  The image shown above is the Milford Waverider in the West Solent, where it had been carried after its mooring was cut in October 2007

01/06/2017 A replacement buoy has been deployed on site. 
30/05/2017 Due to an impact to the buoy, the data being received is suspect. Recovery operations are underway.
