Abstract: Long term wave statistics are needed for many applications in coastal engineering and oceanography in the southern North Sea. Three sources of wave data are available: visual observations, wave measurements and hindcast data from numerical wave models. The availability of these source and their reliability are discussed. A review is made of applications of long term wave statistics to coastal problems in the southern North Sea.
