This report outlines the general ftmction of the Sonic Buoy and its various sub systems and includes a detailed description of the layout and wiring of the sub system interconnections. The buoy has recently been used as part of the 1993 SWALES Experiment to gather data to support a Wave Tide Surge Model. The buoy has been described in the configuration used during this experiment.
