The sea elevation at a fixed point is modelled by means of a second order model, which is a smooth algebraic function of a vector valued Gaussian process. Asymptotic methods, presented first in , are used to estimate the mean upcrossing intensity μ+ (h). The intensity is then used to determine the density of crest height in a second order sea. Numerical examples illustrate the method. The proposed approximation is used to estimate the design crest height for a specified return period.
