Figure II-1-30. Histograms of the normalized (a) wave heights, and
(b) wave periods with theoretical distributions (Chakrabarti 1987)
for x$ 0
p (x) '
for x $ 0
P(x) ' 1 & e
where x is the mean. These are displayed in Figure II-1-29 in which the density function is offset to the right
and has only positive values. The distributions used for wave heights, wave periods, and their joint relations
are described next.
