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.
