Wind induced waves are the most important phenomenon to be considered in the design of coastal and offshore structures. In many applications, it is necessary to use long-term wave data. The analysis of long-term wave data provides a theoretical distribution of probability of occurrence of wave parameters over several years. However, in many situations, there are no long-term measurements available and hence proper wave prediction models for hindcasting are required. Shore Protection Manual  and Coastal Engineering Manual’s  wave prediction methods are the most favorable methods in many countries and Iran. They can predict significant wave height and peak spectral period in fetch-limited, duration-limited and fully developed conditions. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the performance of these methods in prediction of wave parameters in Neka, Caspian Sea.
