During the SWALES experiment in the autumn of 1993, a Directional Waverider Buoy (DWR) was deployed as part of an array of moored instrumentation. Directional spectra were logged on the buoy's EEPROM logger at half-hourly intervals; the same data were telemetered in near real time via the polar orbiting ARGOS satellite data collection system. This data report briefly describes the processes employed in acquisition of the data. It then describes the processes for the recovery of the data from the two source media, the quality control procedures applied and, finally, the resulting output data files. Appendices include compteherisive detalls of the software developed for the above processes and of the formats used for the input and output data.
