Sampling interval is every 30 minutes.

Western Sound Wave Panel

Wave height is determined using zero-crossing analysis of the surface water elevation. The wave module is sampling twice an hour for 17 minutes at 2 Hz (2 samples per second).

The significant wave height is the average height of the highest one third of the waves.

The peak wave period is the period of the waves with the most energy over the sampling interval. The average wave period is the average period of all waves over the sampling interval.
