Abstract: Estimates of extreme wave heights for 73 open-ocean locations on the US East Coast are presented. The estimates include the median wave heights and interquartile ranges for 100-, so-. 20-, 10-, and 5-year return periods. Only waves generated by extra-tropical storms are considered. Hurricane generated waves will be analyzed in future work.
