Brief description

Measured/Calculated wave parameters. Measured and derived wave data from data collected by oceanographic wave measuring buoys anchored at Albatross Bay. This site is jointly operated by the Department of Science, Information Technology, and Innovation and the [North Queensland Bulk Ports (NQBP)](http://www.nqbp.com.au/).
For more information please refer to [www.qld.gov.au/waves](https://www.qld.gov.au/waves).

Field names are;
**Hs** - Significant wave height, an average of the highest third of the waves in a record (26.6 minute recording period).
**Hmax** - The maximum wave height in the record.
**Tz** - The zero upcrossing wave period.
**Tp** - The peak energy wave period.
**Dir_Tp TRUE** - Direction (related to true north) from which the peak period waves are coming from.
**SST** - Approximation of sea surface temperature.
