Abstract: The Coastal Data Informational Program (CDIP) is an extensive network for monitoring waves along the Pacific coastlines of the US. The system has evolved substantially since its inception in 1975. The technological innovations in instruments, system control management, quality control, software, computer hardware, field equipment and installation techniques, data archiving and analysis are described. Some further developments, underway or planned, are also defined.
