Article Type: Ocean Engineering
J. Offshore Mech. Arct. Eng. May 2011, 133(2): 021104.
Published Online: December 6, 2010
...Philip Jonathan; Kevin Ewans Statistics of storm peaks over threshold depend typically on a number of covariates including location, season, and storm direction. Here, a nonhomogeneous Poisson model is adopted to characterize storm peak events with respect to season for two Gulf of Mexico locations...

...Philip Jonathan; Kevin Ewans The characteristics of extreme waves in hurricane dominated regions vary systematically with a number of covariates, including location and storm direction. Reliable estimation of design criteria requires incorporation of covariate effects within extreme value models...

...Paolo Boccotti The quasideterminism (QD) theory introduces a deterministic wave function (of both space and time) that shows what, most probably, will happen if an exceptionally large wave will occur at some point in a sea storm. This deterministic wave function holds for every configuration...

... phase, to improve the modelling of the higher significant wave height. The ability of the MNN to reconstruct sea storms is tested by applying the equivalent triangular storm model. Finally an application to the NOAA buoys moored off California shows a good performance of the MNN algorithm, both during...
