Abstract : Wave persistence graphs were constructed from wave data obtained from lightships and ocean station vessels. An explanation and examples of how to interpret the wave persistence graphics are given. A climatological summary for the selected regions is supplied as a background for arriving at certain generalizations concerning wave persistence. Several applications of wave persistence data are cited. (Author)
