THE LARGE-HEIGHT RESPONSE OF TWO WAVE RECORDERS

L. Draper, J.D. Humphery, E.G. Pitt

Abstract


Two commonly used deep-water wave recorders which depend on acceleration measurement were calibrated on a Hi metre diameter vertical wheel, and also on much smaller laboratory test rigs, over a range of wave periods likely to be encountered at sea. The results showed that the instruments behaved according to expectations. In addition, spectra from two instruments of the same types which were deployed within one mile of each other were compared and shown to be similar.
