Theoretical probability density function (pdf) of ST extreme second-order nonlinear crest heights. In the legend, Pr RW = Pr{max{z(x, y, t)} > 1.25H s | (x, y) Ω, t D} is the probability that the maximum crest height over the ST region AD exceeds the rogue threshold z m = 1.25H s (shown by the dashed gray line). We note that the presence of a breaking-limited maximum crest height (e.g., 1.7H s as suggested by Donelan and Magnusson)40 is not included in the theoretical model.
