When trying to determine wave steepness, data suggests H/L ratio of 1/7 indicates breaking waves. Bouy wave data gives height and seconds but not length (distance) between waves. Are seconds and lenght interchangeable as a practical matter? I know there are many variables other than wave height and periond but what is the proper/practical interpretation of wave data to determine when one should go or sit under a tree?
