Surface Wave Data from the Marine and Inland Waters of Canada; One and Two Dimensional Spectra, Significant Wave Height, and Peak Period
Entry ID: MEDS_WAVE_DATA

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: These wave data consist of both one and two dimensional (directional)
measurements. One dimensional surface wave data have been collected from
approximately 250 locations in marine and inland waters of Canada since 1969.
