Short summary
The information on wave spectral shapes that is required for designing marine structures is presented based on wave data collected from January 2011 to December 2015 in the coastal waters of the eastern Arabian Sea. The variations in the high-frequency tail of the wave spectrum in different months are presented. The slope of the high-frequency tail of the monthly average wave spectra is high during the Indian summer monsoon period (June–September) compared to other months.
