This project utilized both shore-based and shipboard commercial marine radar technology to collect wave statistics. In the first application a shore-based system was installed at Yaquina Bay in Newport, Oregon in order to collect real-time wave information. This information was collected under the auspices of the Northwest Association of Networked Ocean Observing Systems (NANOOS) and will be used in ongoing studies on wave-current interaction. In the second application, a shipboard radar system was utilized to develop processing procedures and algorithms for collecting offshore wave data. These shipboard collections were in support of the environmental baseline study of the Reedsport Wave Energy Site, funded by the Oregon Wave Energy Trust (OWET).
