In this work, we study some geometrical properties of a stationary Gaussian field modeling the sea surface, using the energy spectrum. We consider the length of a crest and the mean speed of contours, which can be expressed as integrals over level sets. We also give central limit theorems for some of these quantities, using chaos expansions. © Applied Probability Trust 2005.
