Floating Mini Ocean Wave Buoy to Observe Sea Wave Height Direction Period Wave Spectrum

Small Size, Long Observation Period, Real-Time Communication

Mini Wave Buoy can observe the wave data in the short-term by the way of short-term fixed-point or drifting, providing stable and reliable data for Ocean scientific research, such as wave height, wave direction, wave period and so on.

Description

Mini Wave Buoy rider can observe the wave data in short-term by the way of short-term fixed-point or drifting , providing stable and reliable data for Ocean scientific research, such as wave height, wave direction, wave period and so on. It can also be used to obtain section wave data in ocean section survey,and the data can be sent back to the client through Bei Dou 4G, Tian Tong, Iridium and other methods.
 

Optional monitoring parameters:

Surface temperature, salinity, air pressure, noise monitoring are expandable parameters.

Introduction:

Mini Wave Buoy is a sort of buoy, which is designed for ocean monitoring. It is able to monitor short-term fixed-point or drifts observation of sea wave data and provide reliable data of wave height, wave direction, wave period and other factors data for Marine scientific research.
