During the WACSIS field experiment, wave elevation time series data were collected over the period December 1997 to May 1998 on and near the Meetpost Nordwijk platform off the coast of the Netherlands from an EMI laser, a Saab radar, a Baylor Wave Staff, a Vlissingen step gauge, a Marex radar and a Directional Waverider.
