Data sets

In situ wind wave and water level measurements in Hornsund, Svalbard in 2013-2021 Z. M. Swirad, M. Moskalik, and A. Herman

Sea pressure and wave monitoring datasets in Hornsund fjord Z. M. Swirad, M. Moskalik, and O. Glowacki

Short summary
Monitoring ocean waves is important for understanding wave climate and seasonal to longer-term (years to decades) changes. In the Arctic, there is limited freely available observational wave information. We placed sensors at the sea bottom of six bays in Hornsund fjord, Svalbard, and calculated wave energy, wave height and wave period for full hours between July 2013 and February 2021. In this paper, we present the procedure of deriving wave properties from raw pressure measurements.
