Abstract
    A statistically-rational method of extreme wave data analysis is presented. A combination of the Fisher-Tippett type I and the four Weibull distributions is proposed as the candidates of distribution functions. The least square method is used for data fitting. The best plotting position formula for each function is determined by the Monte Carlo method with 10,000 simulations per sample size. Confidence intervals of estimated extreme wave heights for given return periods are evaluated by simulations and expressed in the form of empirical formulas, for both the cases when the true distribution is known and unknown. An example of extreme wave data analysis is given.
