The determination of the design wave height (often given as the significant wave height) is usually based on statistical analysis of long-term extreme wave height measurement or hindcast. The result of such extreme wave height analysis is often given as the design wave height corresponding to a chosen return period. Sometimes confidence band of the design wave height is also given in order to include sample variability and measurement/hindcast error.
