Statistical parameters are derived to describe a group of consecutive waves that are large compared with the average wave height. The parameters describing the statistics of ocean wave groups can be derived from the energy spectrum of the waves; they are then compared with those found for actual wave data. Wave groups are an important consideration in designing mooring systems for large vessels subjected to long-period surge motions.
