Abstract

Oceanographic data is required for most coastal science and engineering applications. Examples of such data include wave heights, wave periods and sea level variability. Waves are generally the most important environmental factor producing forces on offshore structures. The design of offshore structures used for oil and gas present problems, due to environmental hazards from wind and current forces and the weight of the structure. In traditional design techniques the structure is first designed to withstand the most severe conditions which it is likely to meet in 50 or 100 years. Thus, as well as an estimate of extreme wave conditions; the statistics of all waves throughout the year have to be specified. In addition to wave heights and wave periods, sea spectra are also important input in analysis of ocean structures.
