Abstract : The accelerometer type wave recorder, used for the Wave Climate Study of the Great Lakes and the Gulf of St. Lawrence was originally designed by the Bedford Institute of Oceanography. Several modifications have been implemented to the accelerometer during the course of the survey. Appendix A shows the final wave recording system and includes the basic wiring diagrams. Appendix B contains a pictorial presentation of the two wave parameters of main interest, the significant wave height and the wave length, corresponding to the period of the spectral peak. (Author)
