Inter-comparison of wave measuring equipment

In order to accurately characterise the waves encountered in the Ifremer Brest Bay test site, a wave measurement campaign was carried out between October and April 2023 using Spotter and Datawell wave buoys, RBR pressure sensors and a Nortek Signature ADCP. The aim of this test campaign is to obtain the data required to carry out an inter-comparison of the various wave measurement instruments.
