Water Column

We are trying to calculate OWC (oscillating water column)

we have a vertical pipe 2 meter diameter in a wave pool.

Every 5 seconds the water level rises 1 meter and descending again.

We would like to utilize this "water piston" to create pressurized air .

1 . what should be the air pipe exit diameter (on the top of the pipe) to create 10 bars air presssure?

2. Rising of the water column takes no more then 1 second (fast burst), is this enough time to pressurize the air volume (3.14 cubic meters) into said pressure?

3. Will the same pressured air flow remain after running in a 100 meters air pipe?

Thanks in advanced.
