HR Wallingford undertakes commissioned wave recording for commercial clients. Locations and reporting formats depend on clients' requirements. Each deployment is typically of one year's duration. Reports include standard plots of wave height, period, direction where available, and extremes. Very little is available in the open literature, but original clients are sometimes willing to release data to a third party.
