Summary

The wave data sets were acquired to allow a characterisation of the wave climate along the coast around Macao (South China Sea), including the directional distribution of energy, propagation of the waves, and extreme wave heights. The files include time series of: H5, H10, H100, Hmax, H, TH5, TH10, THmax, T, Tmax, S(t), etc. In the case of the directional wave buoys it includes mean direction and directional spreading as a function of frequency.
