Wave Measurement Buoy
Living reference work entry
Wave measurement buoys are the special buoys which are commissioned to measure the ocean waves (the modern wave measurement buoys may also collect the meteorological and oceanographic data, depending on the purposes of the wave measurement buoys). In most cases, the wave measurement buoys are anchored at seabed to allow some motions so to reduce the environmental loads acting on the buoy (see Fig. 1).
