Abstract
In this paper, relationships between wave characteristics and upcrossing an d oscillation intensities are used to construct conservative bounds for sig nificant wave heights and amplitudes and for moments of waves' crests and t roughs. Results are illustrated by 5 examples in which both Gaussian and no n-Gaussian models for a sea or a Load are considered.
