dc.description.abstractEighteen years (1976-1993) of hindcast wind and wave information, including hurricanes, is summarized for 108 nearshore locations along the U.S. Atlantic coast. Procedures used to produce this information are discussed and examples of verification against measured data are presented. Tables for each station summarize occurrences by month of spectral wave height, peak wave period, peak mean wave direction, wind speed and wind direction for categories of 0.5 m, 1.0 sec, 22.5 deg, 2.5 m/sec, and 45 deg, respectively. Joint occurrences of height and period for 45-deg direction bands and all directions are tabulated. Finally, mean heights by month and year and maximum heights by month and year, with associated peak periods and peak mean directions, and overall statistics are shown. The 18-year time series of wind and wave information for each station, including spectra, is available from the WIS archive as one-line records every 3 hr. The data tabulation presented in this report is a continuation of the wave information summarized in WIS Report 30.en_US
