New moorings: wave data and engineering design

A new mooring design (Martini et al. 2021) has been developed and is being used with lightweight wave buoys to provide live verification data for coastal wave models.

The Waves and Littoral team of CSIRO Bluelink, in collaboration with UWA, have recently deployed 4 Sofar Spotter wave buoys and 3 acoustic wave and current profilers (AWACs) off the coast of Mandurah, south of Perth. The intent is to collect observation data for the verification of high-resolution littoral and wave modelling; a lack of observations is one of the biggest hurdles in studying the nearshore environment.
