Summary

The wave data sets were acquired to allow a characterisation of the wave climate along the Portuguese coast, 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.
