Abstract:

AMPCROSS is a comprehensive program written for the Control Data Corporation 1604 digital computer for the investigation of the random phenomena associated with ocean waves. The program reconstructs the sampled wave record and determines the wave amplitudes, half-periods, periods, and wave heights. These wave parameters are counted, categorized, and described in terms of magnitude, probability of occurrence, and joint probability of occurrence. This report includes a description of the Fortran 63 routine and a list of the coding steps. Author
