Abstract

A large buoy has been developed to obtain the sea truth data on ocean waves and the current for use in evaluating the accuracy of an ocean radar system. Displacement of the buoy is 70 tons and it has a diameter of 9m, it is now moored near the Okinawa islands (Southwestern part of Japan) in an area of the sea 1450m deep. This area is world famous because it is suffered from many strong typhoons every year and it is the best location to study waves. With this buoy system waves are reproduced using the measured heave of the buoy and its response function obtained from theoretical calculations, and evaluation is made by model experiments in the wave tank. This report presents results of the theoretical calculations, model and field experiments and discusses their accuracies.
