Motion Based Waves
Accurate wave measurements are critical in applications such as offshore wind farm development, navigation, cable laying, breakwater building, and bridge construction.
Waves also result in continuous loads on marine structures, including docks, moorings, and offshore platforms.
Waves are challenging to measure. Variables to consider when collecting wave data include the depth of the measuring device, proximity to shore, wave types, and available infrastructure from which to measure.
Several methods for measuring waves are available, and careful selection of the best approach is needed to get the optimal result.
