|Title:||Evaluation of wave characteristics in the Gulf of Kutch, Gujarat|
|Authors:||Nayak, B U|
|Abstract:||Various statistical wave parameters based on the measured wave data at the Gulf of Kutch for 1 y were computed. Wave activity was generally stronger during April to September and weaker during the rest of the year. Highest significant wave height of 2.75 m and maximum wave height of 3.75 m occurred in April, apparently caused by and unusual depression in the Arabian Sea. Predominant zero-crossing wave periods varied between 3 and 8 s. The wave records were analysed using Tucker's, the statistical (zero-upcrossing) and the spectral methods and the results compared. The design wave height based on Weibull distribution was predicted to be 4.2 and 4.4 m for return periods of 50 and 100 respectively.|
