This paper describes a series of field experiments that provide growth curves and wind histories for waves of wave length r 7 m. In each of 29 runs of from 1 to 4 hours, a directional wave recorder with an effective beam width of 20 degrees was towed downwind at the group velocity of these waves starting from a windward shore....
