WAVE DIRECTION and Other Data from FIXED STATIONS From Coastal Waters of California from 19750313 to 19750525 (NODC Accession 9400044)

The accession contains Wave Surface Data collected in Coastal Waters of California between March 13, 1975 and May 25, 1975. Water surface elevation data was collected during the "Sea Test Program of a Tension Leg Platform" conducted by Deep Oil Technology, Inc., on station at the seaward side of Santa Catalina Island offshore southern California. The data consists of 25 records of water surface elevations about an arbitrary baseline at six locations around the tension leg platform (TLP). Each record is approximately 40 minutes long, collected at 0.5 second recording intervals. Data were collected with IEC Resistance wave staffs and low pass filtered at 0.25 Hz before recording. Data were originally recorded in binary. The number of probes (6) were selected in order to have a large enough number of probes to perform directional spectral analyses even if a probe failed. In some records, one or two of the probes are inconsistent with the others; this is believed to be due to temporary fouling. The data was submitted by Mr. Leonardo Perez. The documentation describes the record format and includes a diagram of the platform location and six probe locations. A sample printout of the data are also included.

Supplemental Information
Note: Metadata for this accession were extracted from a legacy database
maintained by the U.S. National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC). The
design of the database did not exactly reflect the FGDC Content
Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM).

Principal Investigator (PI) and organization contact information
accurately represents all available information from the legacy database
at the time that this description was created. However, proper
attribution of a PI to a specific institution or the role (submitting or
collecting) taken by an institution may not be correct due to inexact
mapping between fields in the legacy database and the CSDGM. Due to this
uncertainty, the contact information was initially recorded in the
Supplemental Information element of the CSDGM description.

To develop more accurate metadata, the NODC reviews metadata for all
accessions on an ongoing basis.
