Wave Recorders

Wave Recorders


Wave Recorders from Valeport are a "PUV" type that use Linear Wave Theory to analyse the pressure and current oscillations generated by the wave action.  In near shore environments (<20m depth) it is not always possible to use a surface following buoy to measure wave activity. In these circumstances the most cost effective solution is a bottom mounted, pressure based device.  What makes Valeport's wave recording instruments different is that this data processing is all carried out on board, giving you:-

  • descriptive statistics,
  • energy spectra, and
  • high resolution directional spectra all in real time.

Of course, all the raw data is logged as well, so you can use your own post-processing routines if you prefer.

MIDAS DWR Directional Wave Recorder
The MIDAS DWR Directional Wave Recorder replaces the old Model 730D instrument, and represents a significant advance in PUV wave recording technology.

As well as the standard non-directional data available from the MIDAS WTR, the MIDAS DWR also performs full onboard directional data analysis, allowing real time directional information at an unsurpassed 2° resolution. The unique features of the MIDAS DWR make it the most cost-effective solution to directional wave monitoring requirements in all shallow water coastal applications. More Info
