Abstract : The method for measurement of directional spectra makes use of a linear array of wave-height probes supported on a rotatable beam. For each orientation of the array, the spectrum along a line perpendicular to that orientation can be determined. A nonuniform arrangement of the wave probes along the beam is given which optimizes the directional selectivity of the array. (Author)
