WERA Wave Measurements: Spectral Bands

Wera Wave Measurements

© Lucy Wyatt, University of Sheffield, UK
  This shows comparisons of integrated wave energy converted into a sigificant waveheight using

wave integral

  • upper panel: the full frequency range and hence the traditional Hs;
  • middle panel: high frequencies;
  • lower panel: the peak frequency.
The figure shows generally good agreement with the main differences being the increased variability in the radar measurements (red) and an overestimation in amplitude at high frequencies and an underestimation at the peak in the higher sea-state conditions with a net overestimation in Hs at these times.
