Progress of Ocean Wave Measurements

We are pleased to announce an upcoming special issue of the Coastal Engineering Journal entitled "Progress of Ocean Wave Measurements", and we invite you to consider submitting a manuscript for publication.

The measurement of ocean waves has a rich and interesting history that has propelled our understanding of ocean wave physics and serves as ground truth for verifying theory and models. The last decade has seen accelerating progress in the measurement of ocean waves: from the proliferation of GPS-based miniature buoys to wave spectra measured from satellites (e.g., CFOSAT). We are interested in publishing a special issue which touches on modern aspects of measuring waves. This could mean in situ with traditional buoys, from operational buoy networks to research platforms to commercial systems, or autonomous measurement platforms, e.g. drones, sail drones, and wave gliders, to ever growing list of wave enabled remote sensing: lidar, radar, SAR, stereo-camera and video, X-band marine radar, infra-red, and others. We will consider a diversity of topics that explore any kind of wave measurement system in the oceans. We especially encourage submissions on measurements in coastal and nearshore regions. We are particularly interested in descriptions of new measurement systems or advances to existing systems, validation and comparison studies, theoretical or practical advances to processing techniques, characterizing local wave environments, measurement based wave climate studies, descriptions of wave development in storm environments, measurement of wave interaction with other mediums including ice, bathymetry, currents, surfactants, rain, and spray. We also encourage surveys or reviews of areas that encompass wave measurement systems and associated processing and techniques. We strongly encourage contributions from students and historically underrepresented groups in Oceanography.
