Multiyear surface waves dataset from the subsurface "DeepLev" Eastern Levantine moored station
Abstract. Processed and analyzed sea surface wave characteristics derived from an up-looking Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) for the period 2016–2022 are presented as a data set . The collected data include full two-dimensional wave fields along with computed bulk parameters, such as wave heights, periods, and directions of propagation. The ADCP was mounted on the submerged Deep Levantine mooring station located 50 km off the Israeli coast to the west of Haifa (bottom depth ~1470 m). It meets the need for accurate and reliable in situ measurements in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, as the area significantly lacks wave data compare to other Mediterranean sub-basins. The developed long term timeseries of wave parameters allow for monitoring and analysis of the region’s wave climate, as well as a deeper understanding of wind-wave generation mechanisms.
