Abstract : Lines of wind duration compiled from an equation derived by Pierson et al are superimposed on the co-cumulative spectrum curves. A table showing durations required for fully developed seas is presented for use in connection with the PM spectrum. A comparison between the durations required for 95 percent maximum height wave development for the co-cumulative curves in H.O. Pub. No. 603 and the PM spectrum indicates much faster wave growth for the PM spectrum at wind speeds over 20 knots. (Author)
