Two types of long term wave climate information are desired for many marine and coastal application sespecially for the design of coastal structures: the design waves and operation alwaves. In convention almethod of design criteriaestimation, it is assumed that the climateisstation ary and the statistics and extreme analysisusing the long-term measured or hindc asted data are used in the statisticalprediction for the future. However, such assumption of steady state is argued recently due to the global clima t echnge.
