The paper addresses how the wave power for sea states can be assessed based on available wind statistics for an ocean area. Results using a simple analytical tool are exemplified for a Pierson–Moskowitz wave spectrum together with long-term wind statistics from one location in the Northern North Sea and from four locations in the North Atlantic. The present method should be useful for making preliminary assessment of wave power for sea states based on, for example, global wind statistics.
