Description: Technical note
INTRODUCTION: The Sea Data wave gage is used extensively by the Corps of Engineers to obtain wave measurements. It measures water pressure with a transducer and records the time series of pressure fluctuations on an internal cassette tape. When deploying internal recording gages, failure of the gage for any reason cannot be detected until after recovery. If failure occurs, the costs of deploying and recovering the instrument may be wasted. Failure to obtain the required data may in turn have other adverse consequences.
