A.V.Garmashov, Yu.N.Toloknov, A.I.Korovushkin

Abstract
The long-term monitoring of wind waves was carried out in 1995 – 2002 on а fixed offshore gas production platform located in the northwest Black Sea. As a result of the analysis of more than 18000 wave records reliable statistical parameters of wind waves, describing the wave regime in the northwest Black Sea in 1995 – 2002, were obtained. It was found that the maximum wave height in summer reached 4,8 m, and in the winter – 8,76 m. Maximum wave height during 1-hour observation in the vast majority of cases exceeds 1,9 times the significant wave height.
