Abstract


The effect of wave grouping on the occurrence frequency distribution of maximum wave height was investigated on the basis of field observation data. The observed maximum wave height distribution fitted the distribution derived from Weibull distribution and was closely related with not only the wave grouping but also wave non-linearity. In the case of large degrees of wave grouping and wave non-linearity, it was found that the maximum wave height was greater than that estimated by the Rayleigh distribution.
