Abstract : The statistical characteristics of wave height period in a deep sea are analysed on the basis of instrumental records and compared with the characteristics based on theoretical considerations. Thus the sinusoidal wave form is corrected and the appropriate formulae for characterizing the complex distribution functions of wind wave elements are derived. (Author)
