These skewed aspects will tend to

**increase**both wave crests and troughs , with roughly offsetting effects on the resulting peak - totrough wave height . This suggests that less nonlinear effects will be shown by wave heights than by the ...Page 206

For low correlation , the first factor predominates and consequently the risk of second failure
