Abstract : File characteristics: Textfile (8 files); ASCII character set. Physical description: 1 computer diskette; 3 1/2 in.; high density; 1.4MB. System requirements: PC compatible; DOS. This floppy disk contains all the data base files. There are 2 files for each ocean region. All files are in ASCII format. The header information included for model wave period distributions file is the Grid Point, ocean, and season. Data are listed as from left to right and top to bottom starting with smallest wave height or wave perios value to the largest. All wave period data are presented or converted to the SOWAM spectral modal period bands with center periods of 3.2, 4.8, 6.3, 7.5, 8.6, 9.7, 10.9, 12.4, 13.8, 15, 16.4, 18, 20, 22.5, and 25.7 seconds.
