The 1973 energy crisis intensified the search for nonconventional energy sources. One of the alternatives usually proposed is the use of power from waves at the sea. The average power per unit length of shoreline as well as the way this power is distributed in time and according to the sea state are; crucial factors in the design of adequate energy extracting devices and in the appraisal of their feasibility and competitive value. Concerning the eastern Mediterranean coast, this important information has, the knowledge of the writers, not been published so far.
