Anemometers; current meters

Description 
Summary

The aim of the measurements was to obtain the slowly-varying component of water motion at the long vertical walled breakwater, especially for skew wave direction. Wave parameters were measured to describe orbital velocities. Wind direction and speed were also noted. Data were recorded every three hours for 30 minutes. Only the results for representative waves were stored.
