The following paper describes the results of a study investigating these correlations. One of the more noteworthy conclusions of the study is the clear need for an adequate description of the seaway in which the sea trials were performed. In particular, sea trials are generally performed not too far from land where sea spectra are quite likely to be directional. Unless the directional spectrum is properly resolved, predictions from model or numerical studies are likely to differ from the observed full scale data.
