AbstractThe structure of storm events means the character of the wave energy distribution in time over the storm period. The storm includes three principal phases: increase, stabilization and waning. The main idea that resulting morphological effect of storm depends on both quantity of wave energy within every phases and distribution of different storm phases over the time. The post-storm relief in the coastal zone depends heavily on the particularity of hydro- and lithodynamic processes during the storm waning phase. The main objectives of the study include estimation of seasonal distribution of wave energy and character of structure of separate storm events for different seasons.
