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 radar location||50° 39.067' N 001° 09.190' W|
|Met station location||50° 39.070' N 001° 09.190' W|
|Storm threshold||1.6 m|
Wave and tide parameters are measured using a Rosemount WaveRadar Rex, located on Sandown Pier, by kind permission of the Pier owners. The Rex was installed on 4 May 2006.
|04/12/2019||The computer at the shore station was replaced.|
|17/12/2018||The connection has been restored.|
|15/12/2018||Communications currently offline.|
|06/03/2017||Due to the engineering works, we are continuing to experience power cuts. Furthermore, the datum of the radar has moved. The instrument will be serviced and relevelled as soon as possible.|
|06/03/2017||Engineering works have started on the pier, which are affecting the tide gauge. Met data are unaffected by the engineering works, but may be disrupted by power losses|
|31/10/2016||The connection is restored.|
|25/10/2016||The WaveRadar Rex is disconnected, likely because of a disruption to the phone/broadband line connection.|
||Power now restored.|
|08/12/2014||Power to the end of the pier has been disconnected while structural works take place.|
|13/03/2014||Power cut at the pier has caused a temporary interruption to data collection.|
|29/03/2010||Internet is down at the Sandown shorestation BT have been notified.|
|18/07/2008||Anemometer not working, cleared and serviced.|
|12/05/2008||Met data not being recieved at website.|
|18/11/2006||The wave processing software has been upgraded to correct the earlier problem. All wave data prior to 1000Z will be corrected and archived via the website's Data Catalogue.|
