A brief description of three different platforms (WAVEWATCH III, Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler mooring and HF ocean radar) with directional wave measurement capabilities is provided. Initial results of directional wave and wind patterns derived from observations within the southern Great Barrier Reef, Australia, show consistency with the WAVEWATCH III model. These early findings are promising for future wind-wave investigations and validation studies in this region.
