Design for service of ships and structures requires a coherent description of the anticipated wind and wave climate. Based on concepts and empirical relations underlying a second generation wind-wave model the paper describes a concise and yet complete description of a wind and wave climate which seems particularly useful in early stages of the design. Its characteristics are compared with concepts and relations often used in naval architecture.
