A directional wave spectrum obtained from SAR image data is compared with a directly ob served directional wave spectrum from buoydata. The SAR image was taken during winter storms in 1994, coincidently with the buoy measurement near Marado island which is the southernmost island of Korea. In order to get a directional wave spectrum, the linear modulation transfer function is applied to the image intensity spectrum from SAR imagery and maximum entropy method to the buoy data, respectively. The
