Description 
Summary

The data were collected in the framework of an environmental study in the Northern Adriatic area (along Venezia coast) for the forecasting of sturm surges and associated floods of Venice. The experimental activity is based on a Datawell Directional Waverider buoy moored at 15 metres of depth (point A) and a Datawell non-Directional Waverider buoy moored at 11 metres of depth (point B). The data were sampled at 1,28 Hz frequency (point A) and 2 Hz frequency (point B) for 1200 seconds (point A) and 1024 seconds (point B) at one-hour interval. The complete set consists of 318 days of recording.
