The Seawatch Wave Buoy is a multi-sensor data buoy capable of measuring wave height and direction, ocean current speed and direction, meteorological parameters, sea surface temperature, salinity and temperature and salinity profiles.
A multi-sensor data wave buoy capable of measuring wave height and direction, ocean current speed and direction, meteorological parameters, sea surface temperature, salinity and temperature and salinity profiles.
The Seawatch buoy is essentially a sensor carrier for a series of oceanographic, meteorological and water quality measurements. The buoy can also be equipped with numerous other sensors, satisfying the customer’s specific configuration needs, such as oxygen, hydrocarbon, gamma radiation measurement and an optical sensor for algae detection.
The buoy is vertically stabilised giving low pitch/roll motions and is ideal for making current, wind and ocean wave measurements. Experience gained since 1985 has shown that the Seawatch buoy design is stable even in extreme sea conditions.
