Description 
Summary

The aim of the measurements was to obtain a non-standard wave spectrum, especially its directional features, in shore regions. Simultaneously, wind parameters (speed and direction) were measured on the station in the North Harbour in Gdansk. In the first stage two buoys were situated close to each other for intercalibration of the instruments. Data were recorded every one hour, and continuously during storms.
