Monthly 2-degree by 2-degree and 5-degree by 5-degree wave
statistics were computed for 1958-1997 (Global Waves) and
1964-1993 (North Atlantic Waves) respectively from COADS
shipboard wave observations.
Significant wave heights are determined for several different
1958 to 1997

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the https://makedatacount.org/ project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
