OCEANLYZ, Ocean Wave Analyzing Toolbox, is a toolbox for analyzing the wave time series data collected by sensors in open body of water such as ocean, sea, and lake or in a laboratory.
OCEANLYZ GUI is a graphical user interface for the OCEANLYZ toolbox.
This toolbox provides spectral and zero-crossing wave analysis. It can calculate wave properties such as zero-moment wave height, significant wave height, mean wave height, peak wave period and mean period. This toolbox can correct and account for the pressure attention (pressure loss) in the water column for data collected by a pressure sensor. This toolbox can separate wind sea and swell energies and reports their properties.
Selected applications for OCEANLYZ toolbox#
Calculate wave properties from field/lab measured data.
Use spectral analysis and zero-crossing method for wave analyzing.
Partition wave spectra and separate wind-sea and swell data.
Correct pressure data that read by a pressure sensor to account for pressure attenuation in water depth.
replace spectrum tail with tail of empirical spectrum (diagnostic tail), (MATLAB and Python Versions).
