making waves

Here's an interesting Rotto resource: 'Near Real-time Wave Data'.

The page (link above) shows sea and swell direction and extent.

Scroll a bit further down and you can see it got a bit choppy around midnight on Friday.

And what is 'significant wave height'?

"The significant wave height is the average height of the highest one third of waves recorded. It is often the wave height reported by an experienced observer."

Our tax dollars at work.
