1- Don't really know. I only look at size and intervalsInteresting to see some Jersey stats.
What does steepness in those charts refer to…
Wave steepness (ie barrelling or dumpy)?
Bottom contours of the sand in the wave zone??
What wind direction is offshore for Jersey waves?
Roger that, thanks. Interesting re winds.1- Don't really know. I only look at size and intervals
2- generally West with slight variations depending on the beach and it's geographic location(i.e...Southwest, West, northwest)
I believe the steepness refers to the ratio of the average wave height to the wave period. I think the NDBC uses it as a scale on how likely the conditions are to capsizing boats at sea.Roger that, thanks. Interesting re winds.
Anyone else know re steepness?
I live 12 blocks from such an inlet. It's a popular beach in the summer.The south Jersey inlet that I frequent is already missing A LOT of sand since last fall.
Yeah...there's a few beaches in CMC that will need sand before the end of this month. W WSW is the cleanest where we are.How could a ‘surfer’ not be able to look at a map and figure out what wind direction is offshore? BTW I find that optimal offshores for most of our local breaks is 300-330 deg. In this age of bots and trolling it’s why I push back and get cranky when some appear way too naive (generous word choice).
Agree about the coastal erosion from this storm. Not a 6-12 hour hurricane event. This one has continued NE destructive gale force winds for 5-7 days. 24/7
236.25 - 258.75
258.75 - 281.25
Ah I see. Thanks .I believe the steepness refers to the ratio of the average wave height to the wave period. I think the NDBC uses it as a scale on how likely the conditions are to capsizing boats at sea.
