Description 
Summary

KNMI keeps an archive with wave spectra and/or digitised wave recordings, which are kept in digital form in a mass storage system and CD-ROM. As to the ownership of the data, since 1980s KNMI ceased wave data gathering. Later data are obtained from the Dutch measuring network North Sea, for internal use only, and owned by Rijkswaterstaat-RIKZ. See http://www.golfklimaat.nl/index.cfm?taal=en Contact person: F.B.
