Abstract

A joint distribution of successive wave periods is presented. First, the analysis includes comparisons between observed wave data and an empirical as well as theoretical distributions of wave period. Secondly, a joint distribution of successive wave periods based on a best fit of a Weibull distribution to the wave period distribution is developed. Comparisons are made with observed wave data as well as with the previous approach of Myrhaug & Rue (1993). It appears that the revised approach is in better agreement with the data.
