Wave direction is a fundamental variable in coastal engineering, whether one is interested in analyzing coastal processes or designing harbor structures. In this work a mixture of circular (wrapped) distributions is introduced for modeling the non-stationary probability distribution function of mean wave directions. The proposed distribution is able to accommodate seasonal and inter-annual variability, as well the influence of several climatic indices. This function was applied to the Atlanticdoi:10.9753/icce.v33.waves.14 fatcat:ik2zbely4jb4lkqaf2qp3ris4y
