  abstract =     "Forecasting of wave heights is essential for planning
                 and operation of maritime activities. Traditionally,
                 wave heights have been predicted using physics-based
                 models, which rely primarily on the energy balance
                 equation. More recently, soft computing techniques such
                 as Artificial Neural Network (ANN), Genetic Programming
                 (GP) have been used to generate forecasts with leads
                 times from a few hours to several days. However, the
                 forecast accuracy of both methods could be improved,
                 particularly at peak wave heights, and at higher lead
                 times. This paper forecasts the wave heights with lead
                 times of 12 h and 24 h using GP. The data are obtained
                 from two locations, along the North American and Indian
                 coastlines. Wind information is used as an input. The
                 modelling procedure relies heavily on the parameter
                 kurtosis, or fourth moment. The forecasts are
                 satisfactory, especially for the peak wave heights
                 formed by the extreme events like hurricanes.",
