The GoPro camera was mounted on a low tripod near the water surface level and video was recorded for about 30 minutes at 60 frames per second. Simultaneous measurements of wind speed and direction were also recorded with a wind LIDAR. Algorithms were written to 1) capture still frames from the video at a given frame rate, 2) strip the center column of pixels from each image, and 3) combine these stripped columns of pixels together, in time sequence, to create a new image called a timestack. The timestack has dimensions of height on the y-axis and time on the x-axis. The code also rectifies the image pixels with respect to height using information from images with stadia rods that are placed at varying distances from the camera setup. This allows the real world height to be calculated from the vertical pixels in the timestack image. Wave speed, wave height, and wave period can be easily extracted from a properly rectified timestack image.
