Abstract: An analytical model for the crest statistics of oceanic waves is derived based on the Breitung's asymptotic formula for the mean h-upcrossing intensity of second-order narrow-band random processes. Comparisons with a wave data set collected at the Tern platform in the northern North Sea during an extreme storm are finally presented.
