This paper proposes a number of theoretical probability distributions for variables of interest when planning operations at sea. Examples of such variables are: duration of storms, duration of calms, intensity of storm peaks, etc. The theoretical distributions are obtained by means of random process theory applied to the curve of evolution of Hs (significant wave height). The model is checked with six years of wave data recorded at the north coast of Spain.
