The knowledge of the incoming ocean wave fields to the coastal and harbor structures is complete when the wave height distribution, as well as the directional motions of the free sea surface, are properly described. This ocean wave directional movements are usually described by the directional spectral density. Sea surface movements can be imaged by using microwave remote sensing systems. Nowadays the spatial resolution of these devices is not able to provide data in small scale areas, such as a harbor, a beach, etc. Nevertheless, the remote sensing measurements in open waters can be propagated to the coast in routine by using the additional help of numerical wave propagation models and in-situ sensors.
