Earlier this month UNCW's Coastal Ocean Research & Monitoring program deployed the first ever "wave buoy" in this part of North Carolina. UNCW placed the buoy five miles east of Masonboro Inlet. It will provide the university with information on wave height and direction. The buoy will transmit information every 30 minutes to a satellite, and that information will be sent to a receiver station in Hawaii, which will process it and update it on UNCW's website almost instantaneously.
