Abstract : The high degree of sensitivity of computed ocean wave spectra to wind speeds requires high accuracy in wind speed measurements and a knowledge of the heights above mean water level at which the observations are taken. This paper contains a tabular listing of the anemometer heights on as many ships so equipped as were available at this writing. (Author)
