Description[edit | edit source]

In fluid dynamics, the wave height of a surface wave is the difference between the elevations of a crest (point of maximum upward displacement) and a neighbouring trough (exact opposite, so the minimum or lowest point). Wave height is a term used by mariners, as well as in coastal, ocean and naval engineering.

MSP Challenge[edit | edit source]

Wave Height is a static data layer, providing useful information for planning different human activities, e.g. wind farms, or indeed wave farms.
