Abstract : This version of the Field Wave Gaging Program (FWGP) Wave Data Analysis StaNdard focuses on procedures for analyzing directional wave data from pressure slope arrays and pressure/biaxial current meter gages. Nondirectional wave data analysis is inherently included as a simplification (a subset) of directional wave data analysis. Likewise, analysis of data from wave staffs is a subset of these procedures, obtained by eliminating the pressure response correction. The data collection and analysis procedures described are only applicable to wind-generated surface gravity waves of engineering significance. This document covers analysis procedures for measured time series (wave records) that are assumed to contain no significant number of errors or gaps. (MM)
