SEVENTH WAVE



50% of all waves exceed the average wave height,
and an equal number are smaller.
The highest one-tenth of all waves are twice as high as the
average wave height (and four times more powerful).

The probability curve keeps rising off the scale: one in 5000 waves
is three times higher and so on.
The significant wave height H3 is twice the most probable height
and occurs about 15% or once in seven waves,
hence the saying

"EVERY SEVENTH WAVE IS THE BIGGEST"



THE TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGING

Come gather 'round people wherever you roam
And admit that the waters around you have grown
And accept it that soon you'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you is worth savin'
And you better start swimmin' or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'

Come writers and critics who prophesize with your pen
Keep your eyes wide the chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon for the wheel's still in spin
There's no tellin' who that it's namin'
The loser now will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'

Come mothers and fathers throughout the land
Don't criticize what you can't understand
Your sons and daughters are beyond your command
Your old road is rapidly agin'
So get out of the new one if you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'
