The data contain raw and processed values concerning wave size and direction, energy spectral data (both original and processed), and, where available, sea surface temperature, air temperature and pressure, wind speed and direction. The data are collected in real-time and transmitted to the Coastal Data Information Program (CDIP) at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO), La Jolla, CA, where they are processed and submitted to quality control procedures.
