Generate a random series of 100 data points pertaining to the wave height (H) and wave period (T) for a site where the mean wave height is Hm = 2 m. The wave height should be sampled from a Rayleigh distribution with the shape parameter set to o = √2/ and the period should be sampled from a uniform distribution between 3 and 10 s. NOTE: If you are using MS Excel to generate your data points, the following commands may be used to obtain the wave heights and periods: ● ● Wave height: =2*SQRT(2/PI())*SQRT(-2*LN(RAND())). This command is equivalent to H = Hmo√ 2 In U where U is a random number between 0 and 1. Wave period: 3+7*RAND()
