Abstract : The study discusses one of the calculation methods used in the evaluation of two extensive series of aerial stereo photographs of waves in deep water. Some of the qualitative characteristics of the two-dimensional energy spectrum are determined. According to the method, which is based on studies by Marks and Krylov, the waves on the sea surface are considered as additions of an infinitely great number of harmonics with various amplitudes, frequencies, directions and random phases which are defined by mathematical formulae.
