AN EFFICIENT STATISTICAL METHOD OF ESTIMATION OF EXTREME MARITIME EVENTS USING TWO SETS OF RELATED INFORMATION

B. Manoha, J. Bernier, M. Graff

Abstract


The construction of marine works necessitates a good knowledge of the extreme events which can affect it, such as the storm waves or the water levels. A statistical method of estimation of these extreme events has been developped at L.N.H. The principle of this method, based on the theory of renewal processes, is presented hereafter, as well as the results that it can provide. Some applications of the method are described in the paper ; in particular the application to a site where the available data are insufficient, and where the method enables to precise the results by using complementary numerous data on a neighbouring site, is presented.
