Abstract: A wave and tide gauge has been developed utilising a strain-gauge pressure transducer. The transducer with associated electronic circuitry gives an output voltage proportional to the water column above it. In laboratory experiments, the system has been calibrated and checked to an accuracy of plus or minus 10 cm in a total water column of 40 m. The instrument has been field tested as a tide gauge in shallow waters where there is minimal wave activity and also as a wave recorder. In both cases appropriate filtering is applied to emphasise the measuring parameter. The unit may also be used as a wave recorder in deep waters with appropriate corrections. Possible improvements in the mechanical fabrication and the electronic circuitry are discussed.
