The possible differences between basin waves and field waves were investigated, comparing long crested and short crested waves, short crested waves at different scales and the high frequency spectra of field and basin waves. It was observed that short crested basin waves and field waves show very similar behavior. We conclude that, beside simulations and field data, basin testing is an important tool to study extreme waves and their statistics.
