`oceanwaves`

provides a set of functions to calculate summary statistics for ocean waves, using a record of sea surface elevation as input. For sea surface elevations derived from bottom-mounted pressure transducers, the package also contains a function `prCorr()`

to correct for depth attenuation of the pressure signal, and the `swDepth()`

function from the package `oce`

can be used to convert pressure data into ocean surface elevations (see the included package vignette).

`waveStatsSP()`

produces wave height and period statistics using spectral analysis methods, while `waveStatsZC()`

calculates additional wave height and period statistics based on a zero-crossing algorithm.

See the package vignette for example workflows to proceed from raw pressure data to summary wave statistics.

Pressure corrections and wave statistics functions were adapted from Urs Neumeierâ€™s `waves`

functions for MATLAB, developed from earlier work by Travis Mason and Magali Lecouturier. http://neumeier.perso.ch/matlab/waves.html
