Abstract : I begin the presentation of wave-measurement technology in the 1980s with a brief review of the advances critical to the development of in situ systems in the past two decades and attempt to project their further development (Section 2). In Section 3, I describe novel wave-sensing methods that might be used in systems of the near-and mid-term future, and in Section 4, I synthesize some of these ideas to simulate futuristic in situ ocean wave-measurement systems.
