Elevated Ocean Levels - Storms affecting NSW Coast - 1980 to 1985

"This report presents the results of a search of meteorological and wave data bases for storm events during the period May 1980 to the end of December 1985.

Storms, defined by periods when significant wave-height exceeded a threshold of 2.5m, have been identified for the four NSW coastal regions; north, mid-north, central and south. Each storm has been described in terms of wind and wave parameters and then classified in terms of severity.

The data presented in this document should be used as a source for event identification and the actual data then sought for particular events."
