Abstract

We present here a preliminary examination and analysis of a small suite of 3D wave data to explore what new insight or inference we can garner – particularly toward the realm where conventional approaches have not yet been. While we caught a few glimpses that might indicate a need for new conceptualizations, it by no means negates the vast positive contributions that the conventional approaches have allowed us to make in the past century. We feel it is timely to encourage further 3D ocean wave measurement and thereby facilitate fresh new states of study and to enhance our understanding of ocean waves. Keywords: wind waves, 3D wave measurements, ocean waves, wave data analysis.
