OPTIMUM ESTIMATION OF OCEAN WAVE HEIGHTS USING ACCELEROMETER DATA
The problem of estimating ocean wave heights given accelerometer and pressure measurements from a spar buoy is described. The correlated ocean waves are represented as a second order system driven by white noise. The buoy dynamics in the vertical are represented as a second order system driven by the waves or by white noise. Some results are given for models with state vectors of order three and four using real data.
