Simultaneous measurements of wind velocity and water height were made on eleven days at an exposed site off the New England coast. While a wave gauge measured water height, a vertical array of anemometers recorded wind velocities at as many as eight heights up to 12 meters above mean sea level (MSL). The three lowest anemometers were arranged to float 30, 50, and 70 cm above the instantaneous water surface. Continuous atmospheric pressure and temperature measurements were made during several runs.
