Abstract:

Data are mean significant wave height and wave period (averaged daily and monthly) for 17 CDIP MOP model-output sites on the mainland coast of Santa Barbara County, which are nearest to the nine mainland SBC LTER reefs. Data were obtained from the Coastal Data Information Program (CDIP) MOP system (MOnitoring and Prediction). The sampling period is usually 30 mintes of each hour, and data are reported hourly by CDIP. These data represent aggregates of a subset of the publically available CDIP product "MOP Alongshore Sea and Swell Predictions". (http://cdip.ucsb.edu). This dataset is planned to be ongoing. All times are UTC.

From http://cdip.ucsb.edu: The Coastal Data Information Program (CDIP) is a research group at Scripps Institution of Oceanography that monitors coastal waves and nearshore sand levels on regional scales. CDIP maintains a network of optimally-placed, directional wave buoys from San Diego to Eureka. The buoy measurements are used to initialize a high spatial resolution (100m x 100m) linear spectral wave propagation model. The resulting hourly hindcasts and nowcasts of CA coastal wave conditions have a level of accuracy that is not possible with more traditional wind-wave generation models that are initialized with modeled wind fields.
