Part of: Ocean Wave Measurement and Analysis


Raw directional wave sample time series are frequently contaminated with spikes from various sources. The standard procedure in correctly editing these time series includes locating and correcting spikes using some interpolation method. This paper presents a procedure for locating spikes based on an assumption that wave data are well distributed about the time series mean.
