Directional spectra comparisons between HF radar and a wave model

By L.R. Wyatt, J.J. Green and A. Middleditch


Directional spectra measurements using HF radar are compared with model data to confirm limitations of the currently available theory that underpins these measurements. In high seas, waveheight is overestimated but it is demonstrated that there is no clear impact on the shape of the spectrum which is in reasonable agreement with the model. The need for increased averaging before inversion is discussed.\ud \u
