Summary

The wave power available at the portuguese coast is evaluated by using three chronological series of wave records representing the northern and southern parts of the West coast and the South coast of Portugal. Analytical models for the annual mean spectra and probability distributions for wave power are derived. Statistics for extreme wave heights are also included.
