Short summary
In this study, based on a 10-year ship accident dataset released by the International Maritime Organization, we analyzed the sea state characteristics during ship accidents that occurred in weather-related conditions. It is found that sea states of co-existed wind sea and swell, with close wave periods and oblique wave directions, represent threats to sailing vessels. We hope that these findings are valuable references to the study of shipping safety and also extreme wave mechanisms.
