A metocean buoy is recognised as a key science requirement for studying air-sea processes and ties in with the West Coast Environment and Air-Sea Interaction programmes presently undertaken by NIWA. This study investigates the scientific rationale for a metocean buoy and addresses the technological and financial aspects involved.
