In order to conduct effective resource assessment for the marine energy industry the applied analysis techniques must be consistent and practicable. It is therefore important to establish the parameters of interest when characterising a sea state. A number of parameters for describing the shape of individual waves in the time-domain are examined. These parameters are used to characterise wave records from three selected sites: The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), UK; The Wave Hub test site, UK and the North Alwyn platform east of the Shetland Islands.
