NODC Standard Product: Texas-Louisiana Shelf Circulation and Transport Processes Study: Wave Data (3 disc set) (NODC Accession 9800140)

browse graphicPreview graphic
Wave data collected in the Gulf of Mexico from 09 April 1992 to 03 October 1994. The data were collected by Texas A&M University (TAMU) as part of the Texas-Louisiana Shelf Circulation and Transport Processes Study (LATEX A). This package contains MiniSpec directional wave data and SeaData non-directional wave data from five sites. This is burst data from which all wave information can be derived. The wave data project reports are also included on this disc.

Copies of these discs are currently available via the NCEI Online Store at https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/nespls/olstore.prodspecific?prodnum=5527
