This thesis describes our research on wave monitoring using wireless sensor nodes. A wireless sensor node is equipped with a 3D accelerometer and built into a canister inside a buoy. A specialized algorithm is developed to calculate wave height based on the approximated vertical acceleration caused by waves. The results from this algorithm are analysed using experiments within a controlled environment. Additionally, experience is gained with deployment of a prototype Wireless Sensor Network setup in the marine environment.
