Summary

The data were collected in the framework of an environmental study in view of the construction of harbour dams at Pozzallo and Licata (Sicily). The meteorological data were collected hourly. The wave data were sampled with a frequency of 2 Hz, with a duration of individual records of 20 minutes, at intervals of 90 minutes. The data sets are stored as a raw time series together with the related characteristic parameters Hs, Ts, Hm, Tm, Tz, obtained by Tucker method (M.J.
