Abstract

Although the fitting of univariate distributions to environmental parameters are a relatively
straightforward task, the fitting of a joint or multivariate distribution, where the different variables
have a degree of correlation is more of a problem. This paper considers the fitting of a joint
distribution to the two main parameters considered in coastal defence, namely waves and high sea
levels. The resultant range of wave height and high sea level combinations is explained, together with
how this range or ‘curve’ of values is interpreted and used in coastal defence.
