Meet the Wave Buoy

Wave measurements are an indispensable part of any MetOcean or Limnology project. The Obscape Wave Buoy is based on recent advances in battery and solar power, sensor and data technology, ensuring a rugged, light-weight, reliable and affordable wave buoy.

The Wave Buoy uses a combination of motion sensors and an electronic compass to measure the directional wave field with high accuracy. This yields the directional wave spectrum and all parameters that can be derived from it, such as the 1-dimensional energy-density spectrum and a range of bulk wave parameters (significant wave height, peak wave period, peak wave direction, etc.).

Solar and Battery Version available!

Purchase includes Free use of the Data Portal,  for the lifetime of your Wave Buoy  and 5,000 free satellite communication credits to get you started!
