Abstract : Stereophotographs of the sea surface were obtained by the Navy Photoreconnaissance Squadron (VAP-62) stationed in Jacksonville, Florida. These photographs were taken on 2 January 1964 about sixty miles northeast of Bermuda. They were then analyzed to obtain wave heights from which the two dimensional energy spectrums of the sea surface was obtained. (Author)
