Author Topic: Speed distributions in sea state computer

In the sea state computer we display the distributions of periods, speeds, and wavelengths as a function of wind speed for fully developed sea states. In the display we have found an error for wind speeds of 16 kts and less. For any wind in that range, the periods are correct, but we show the wrong scale for the speed distributions. For each of the speeds shown, increase the scale by a factor of 3. Thus if a distribution shows a peak at 4 kts it should actually be 12 kts. Above 16kts wind speeds the dissplays are correct.
