Brief description

Waverider buoys measure wave height, wave period and (if directional) wave direction. The currently available buoys with their corresponding World Meteorological Organization (WMO) number are: Bureau of Meteorology directional (except for original Cape du Coudeic 55040) waverider buoys (thirty minute observations) - at Cape du Couedic/Kangaroo Island, South Australia (55040), new Cape du Couedic buoy (55053) and Cape Sorell, Tasmania (55026 - has been decommissioned), new Cape Sorell (55052). Western Australia Department of Transport (DOT) directional waverider buoys (three hourly observations) - at Jurien (56004), Rottnest Island (56005), Cape Naturaliste (56006), Cottesloe (56008), Esperance (56010), Albany (56011), Mandurah (56014). Queensland Department of Environment and Science (DES) waverider buoys (all directional except for Bundaberg, 30 minute observations) - at Albatross Bay (52121), North Moreton Bay (55027), Cairns (55028), Townsville (55029), Mooloolaba (55030), Hay Point (55032), Emu Park (55033), Gold Coast (55036), Tweed Heads (55037), Gladstone (55038), Caloundra (55045), Bundaberg (55046). Manly Hydraulics Laboratory (part of the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE), directional wave rider buoys (one hourly observations) - at Eden (55020), Batemans Bay (55014), Byron Bay (55017), Coffs Harbour (55018), Crowdy Head (55019), Port Kembla (55022), Sydney (55024). Gippsland Ports directional wave rider buoy (30 minute observations) - Lakes Entrance (55047). Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) waverider buoys (twenty minute observations) - Maria Island (55058), Goodrich Bank (53048). The wave buoy data is issued in GTS bulletins (which are only available for 24 hours) : IOWK01 (in BUFR format) and SWWE01 (CREX format). The data is collated by the Bureau into a CSV file (containing the last 24 hours of observations) which is updated every hour, at 5 minutes past the hour. This data is provided via WFS to the AODN, and available via download by CSV.

Lineage

Waverider buoy data from the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Global Telecommunication System (GTS) is provided, as delivered, by the Bureau of Meteorology. In March 2018, Queensland buoys were added. In July 2020, NSW buoys were added. In September 2020, Victorian buoys were added. In April 2021, IMOS buoys were added. This data is collated by AODN, and made available as a timeseries. The location of the buoy in the WMO message is recorded in degrees, minutes (not seconds), hence the location is only accurate to 1-2 kilometres.
