These measurements are usually obtained using in situ ocean buoys or by satellite altimetry, but are sometimes incomplete due to instrument failure or routine network upgrades. In such situations, a reliable gap filling technique is desirable to provide a continuous and accurate ocean wave field record. Recorded on a land based seismic network are continuous seismic signals known as microseisms. These microseisms are generated by the interactions of ocean waves and will be used in the estimation of ocean wave heights. Grammatical Evolution is applied in this study to generate symbolic models that best estimate ocean wave height from terrestrial seismic data, and the best model is validated against an Artificial Neural Network. Both models are tested over a five month period of 2013, and an analysis of the results obtained indicates that the approach is robust and that it is possible to estimate ocean wave heights from land based seismic data.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||IEEE||Copyright (published version):||2014 IEEE||Keywords:||Significant wave height;Grammatical evolution;Genetic programming||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||2014 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC), Beijing, China, 6 - 11 July 2014|
