Measurements of short ocean waves during the MBL ARI West Coast Experiment

Klinke, Jochen; Jähne, Bernd

Within the framework of the Marine Boundary Layers Accelerated Research
Initiative (MBL ARI) a buoy-mounted optical system was developed for the
measurement of the small-scale structure of the ocean surface with high
spatio-temporal resolution. The system is capable of measuring two wave
slope components in an area of 15 x 20 cm with a dynamic slope range
of more than +-1.25 at a sampling rate of 30 Hz. Wave number spectrabr /> up to a maximum wave number of 8000 rad/m can be measured with thebr /> instrument. During the MBL ARI West Coast Experiment the system wasbr /> successfully deployed in the field for the first time. Here, we provide abr /> detailed description of the instrument and present first results from thebr /> West Coast Experiment 1995./p>
