Based on hindcast Barents Sea wave fields, an approach to a directional spectral wave climate description is proposed. A set of classes of climatic wave spectra are identified and the probability of occurrence of spectra in each class is determined. The spatial and temporal variability of the climatic wave spectral parameters for the different classes are considered to be non-random functions of underlying random arguments.
