Abstract : Using a numerical transformation technique, significant wave data (height, peak period, and direction) have been computed for the 20-year interval 1956 through 1975 for the U.S. Atlantic coast. The wave data are presented for 166 stations in six data products: (1) Geographical variation in the wave climate; (2) Twenty-year percent occurrence tables; (3) Wave rose diagrams; (4) Mean and largest wave-height tables; (5) Return period tables, including wave parameter statistics; and (6) Over duration tables. A brief description of each product is given and some sections on use of the products, including examples, are provided.
