By examining the relationship of the individual waves in an ocean wave record and the power density spectrum (PDS), it is demonstrated that the PDS conventionally obtained spectral analysis can be reasonably approximated, except at the very low frequency end, by a pseudo-power density spectrum constructed from the individual heights and periods contained in the record. The very low frequencies seen in the side bands of the PDS are examined as products of amplitude modulation by analogy with simulated wave records and as an indication of the presence of wave groups. In addition, wave groups are then identified and their properties determined in 19 selected ocean wave records by integrating the wave record using the procedure of Funke and Mansard (1979).
