Scatter Diagram

Joint probability of two or more (metocean) parameters.

NOTE 1 A scatter diagram is especially used with wave parameters in the metocean context, see ISO 19901-1:2005, A.5.8. The wave scatter diagram is commonly understood to be the probability of the joint occurrence of the significant wave height (Hs) and a representative
period (Tz,i  or Tp,i). NOTE 2 Adapted from ISO 19901-1:2005, definition 3.24.
