Preliminary wave and hydrostatic pressure data collected from moored directional wave gauges in the Gulf of Mexico as part of the LATEX project from 19920825 to 19920826 (NODC Accession 9400018)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This data is a special submission to NODC containing wave data during Hurricane Andrew August 25-26, 1992. This data file contains 24 bursts spaced at 2 hour intervals. Each burst contains 2048 points sampled at 2 Hz. The positive U and V axis must be rotated +105 degrees in the mathematical sense in order to align the +V axis with true north. For this data a time stamp of the first point of the burst is followed by 2048 points of data. The meter is located 2 meters above bottom.

LATEX-A Hydrographic and Current data was submitted by Dr. Norman L Guinasso Jr., of Texas A&M University, College Station, TX.
