A DISCUSSION OF SOME MEASURED WAVE DATA

J.R. Wilson, W.F. Baird

Abstract


The significant wave height and peak period as derived from the spectral analysis of 171 measured wave records taken in the ocean off Western Head, Nova Scotia are compared to the more classical parameters derived from individual wave heights and by the Tucker method. The highest surface elevation and the maximum wave height occurring in the records are compared to values predicted by Cartwright and Longuet-Higgins (1956), Goda (1970), and Longuet-Higgins (1952).
