The knowledge of the spectral behavior of a specific sea region is complete when we know surface elevations and directional wave movements. Usually, sea directional descriptions have been made using pitch-roll buoys, which can provide us with several wave characteristic time series. Alternatively, there are other measure systems, which belong to remote sensing technics, such as shipboard navigation radars. The aim of the present work is to compare results obtained from pitch-roll data and ship radar wave measurements obtained during a campaign in the Cantabric Sea.
