Wave measurements

Wave height, wave periods and directions are frequently used for design studies of breakwaters, dikes and harbour layouts. Measured waves are needed to deliver boundary conditions for numerical modelling with for example SWAN or HARES

Svašek Hydraulics has measured waves in the recent years on the following locations:

  • Installation of a Endeco Wave Track buoy in Ghana which online data communication to a shore based computer through an EMM data telemetry buoy.
  • Fixed point wave measurements in Guyana with an AWAC-AST (Nortek AS) ADCP fixed to a bottom mounted frame at 24 m depth. The AWAC was deployed twice for a two month period.
  • Fixed point wave measurements in India with an AWAC-AST (Nortek AS) ADCP fixed to a bottom mounted frame at 15 m depth. The AWAC was deployed once for a one month period.
