Abstract

In the summer of 1977 an experiment was conducted to measure the fluctuating pressure over surface gravity waves. Instruments were mounted on a slim mast, located 27 km offshore, in the North Sea. Instrumentation consisted of two static pressure probes, designed and provided by R. Snyder, two resistance wires and an underwater pressure sensor. Mean wind speed and direction were also measured. The sampling rate was at least 2 Hz for all instruments. The analysis shows that the results obtained by Snyder et al. (1981) can be carried over to conditions encountered in this experiment, which are more representative of open ocean conditions.
