2 Wave Data: is often reported or presented as a spectrum . Wave energy is a proxy for wave height Wave Nomenclature Wave Field are usually described by three variables: H: height sometimes reported as Hsig or Hrms Hsig = average of 1/3 largest waves recoded or observed Hrms = square root (of the average of the sum ((of all the waves recorded or observed )squared) T: period α : angle, either geographic angle with respect to north or incident wave angle with
