Directional and non-directional Waverider

Directional Waverider The CSIR makes use of Datawell's Directional Waverider Mark II, Directional Waverider MKIII, Directional Waverider DWR4, as well as the non-directional Waverider SG buoys to measure waves.

Datawell has a history of over 40 years in the oceanographic instrumentation arena, and their wave height measuring buoys have been the world standard during this period. Their buoys are accurate and have well-proven stabilized platform sensors. They have, for example, standard integrated data loggers, flash cards that store up to 2 Gbyte of measured data, standard GPS position monitoring, and a HF link for ranges up to 50 km.

For more detailed specifications on each of the buoys, please consult the Datawell website.
