In support of HNEI's Marine Renewable Energy Center, UH researchers used wave records obtained with Directional Waverider buoys to calibrate the UH wave models for shallow water conditions. This data provides developers with information about the site specific wave conditions at the 30, 60, and 80m berths of the Wave Energy Test Site at Kaneohe Bay including extreme waves that devices must survive during their life cycle.
