Abstract - - SCAWVEX is an EU MAST project providing data sets measuring the spatial and temporal variability of coean waves and currents. Wave measurements obtained during three experiments are discussed in this paper. These include measurements using bottom-mounted pressure sensors, HF and satellite radar. The project has demonstrated the suitability of HF radar for simultaneous wave and current monitoring in coastal waters. The availability of satellite data in coastal waters is limited by the requirements of global coverage. The experiments have revealed interesting insights into wave-current interaction processes.
