AWAC *.wst file

Posted by Darshani Thotagamuwage at August 01. 2017


I exported the AST time series (wst file) from AWAC processed data. Here is a part of it for example;

01 01   5.280   5.625

01 02   5.332   5.625

01 03   5.272   5.581

01 04   5.256   5.581

01 05   5.263   5.574

01 06   5.353   5.574

01 07   5.308   5.588

1st column-burst number

2nd column-burst counter

I don't understand what actually given by the last two columns. Which one is the AST? I presume it is the 3rd one. Is the last one Pressure, since it gives one value for two different ASTs? Please explain.

Thank you very much

Hi Darshani,

Your suggestion is correct; here is the description of the .wst file (which you will also find in the .whr - wave header file)

AST Time Series (pressure - PUV):

 Burst 1  Sample 1   AST distance (meter)  Pressure (dBar)

Best regards,

Hi Elin,

Thank you for the reply. Actually the .whr (wave header file) file I've got does not mention of a 4th column, that is why I get confused. It looks like this;


AST Time Series:

 Burst 1  Sample 1   AST distance (meter)

 Burst 1  Sample 2   AST distance (meter)

 Burst 1  Sample n   AST distance (meter)


Another thing; 

Is this AST time series the same as AST or AST Corr that is shown in Strom wave burst data plots? (see attached). 

thank you and kind regards
