Figure 2. Schematization of wave height and direction observations from NDBC buoy 42040 for April 1, 2010, to August 1, 2012. Colors indicate the percentage (%) of the occurrence for each wave height-direction bin. Wave height bins (numbered H1H5) are organized from the center outward with larger waves (2 m and higher) in the outer ring (H5). Wave direction bins (numbered D1D16) each span 22.5 degrees (°), from 0° to 360°, labeled around the circumference of the diagram.
