Results of an experimental program with a model of a moored Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel are used to study the probability distributions associated with various phenomena related with green water loading. Separate analysis of wave height and crests are performed in order to assess the presence and significance of nonlinearities. Time series of pitch motion and relative motion are analysed to check for linearity of the response process. Probability distributions of the occurrence of water on deck and of the conditional distribution water height above deck are also studied.
