Description: Technical note
Introduction: The Field Wave Gaging Program is a work Unit of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Coastal Field Data Collection Program (CFDCP). It is charged with collecting and distributing coastal wave data to contribute to a national wave climatology for use in planning, design, and operation of coastal projects. The development of a national gaging network has resulted from ongoing research in instrumentation design, systems analysis, and data analysis techniques. The current network provides near-real-time collection and processing of wave conditions from 36 near-shore gages and 7 deep-water buoys. For maximum usefulness to the coastal engineering community, the program will rely equally on a well-planned data base management structure to ensure timely dissemination of the data and its reliable, accessible archival. Data base management consists of analyzing, quality checking, reporting and archiving the individual wave measurements.
