Abstract: Abstract: The statistical variations in wave energy spectral estimates for hurricane waves are examined empirically for 12 separate intervals of wave records measured during Hurricane Carla in September 1961. Measurements were made on a Chevron Oil Company platform in South Timbalier Block 63, Gulf of Mexico, at a water depth of 100 feet. Hurricane waves were chosen for the analysis because these waves show, in exaggerated form, the effects of departures from linearity on the statistical variability in spectral estimates. This report gives the analysis for Hurricane Carla and develops certain implications and consequences of the empirical results.
