WAVE DIRECTION and Other Data from FIXED STATIONS From Coastal Waters of California from 1975-03-13 to 1975-05-25 (NCEI Accession 9400044)

Metadata Updated: December 4, 2020

The accession contains Wave Surface Data collected in Coastal Waters of California between March 13, 1975 and May 25, 1975. Water surface elevation data was collected during the "Sea Test Program of a Tension Leg Platform" conducted by Deep Oil Technology, Inc., on station at the seaward side of Santa Catalina Island offshore southern California. The data consists of 25 records of water surface elevations about an arbitrary baseline at six locations around the tension leg platform (TLP). Each record is approximately 40 minutes long, collected at 0.5 second recording intervals. Data were collected with IEC Resistance wave staffs and low pass filtered at 0.25 Hz before recording. Data were originally recorded in binary. The number of probes (6) were selected in order to have a large enough number of probes to perform directional spectral analyses even if a probe failed. In some records, one or two of the probes are inconsistent with the others; this is believed to be due to temporary fouling. The data was submitted by Mr. Leonardo Perez. The documentation describes the record format and includes a diagram of the platform location and six probe locations. A sample printout of the data are also included.
