Summary

California’s Coastal Data Information Program (CDIP) has a hind cast feature that allows one to model hourly height and period at known locations back to 2000. Fitting these hindcasts to observed height and periods indicates that the hindcasts have consistent biases that can be corrected for statistically. Past work generated bias corrections for 32 sites in the Channel Islands. We use these bias corrections to correct hourly height and period hindcasts at these sites from 2000 to 2017. Data columns include: year_utc, month_utc, day_utc, hour_utc, cdip_Hs_m, cdip_Tp_sec, cdip_Dp_degTrue, adjusted_cdip_Hs_m, mean_sensor_pressure_dbar, Transect_depth_m, ubr_Sensor, Tbr_sensor, wave_energy, date, juliand, season, wyr, waveyr, season_yr, [...]

Purpose

These data can be used to understand wave climate at sites in the Channel Islands where the National Park Service has been collecting long term biotic data, making it possible to estimate the extent that wave energy can be a driver for some species densities.
