   Size             :    85547 X 4
   Sampling Rate    :    1 Hz
   Device           :    ultrasonic wave gauges
   Source           :    SRI, Ministry of Transport, Japan 
   Format           :    ascii, c1: time (sec) c2-4: surface elevation (m)
   Description      :
     The wave data was measured at the Poseidon platform  
     in the Japan Sea from 24th November 1987 08.12 hours to 25th November 
     1987 07.57 hours. Poseidon was located 3 km off the coast of Yura 
     in the Yamagata prefecture, in the Japan Sea during the measurements. 
     The most important wave components are to some extent influenced by the 
     water depth of 42 m. The data are measured with three ultrasonic wave 
     gauges located at the sea floor and the relative coordinates of the 
     gauges are as follows (x-axis points to the East, y-axis points to 
     the North):
              X (m)    Y (m)
       c2:   -4.93,    25.02
       c3:    5.80,    92.12
       c4:    0.00,     0.00
   
     This dataset is for non-commercial use only.
 
     Hm0 = 5.1m, Tm02 = 7.7s, Tp = 12.8s
