GULF OF MEXICO RARE WAVE RETURN PERIODS

Estimates of rare wave and crest heights in the "Gulf of Mexico" were derived from the "Ocean data gathering program" hindcasts of twenty-two severe hurricanes affecting the Gulf since 1900. Results vary little between the sectors of the gulf investigated. Rare wave heights are not sharply focused by direction. The results provide a basis for evaluation of platform design wave criteria in the Gulf of Mexico. Order from NSFI as No. 16368.
