Extreme, freak or rogue waves are produced by a number of physical mechanisms that focus the water-wave energy into a small area, due to wave instability, chaotic behaviour, dispersion (frequency modulation), refraction (presence of variable currents or bottom topography), soliton.

Uses fully nonlinear hydrodynamic numerical models to discuss rogue waves. Extreme, freak or rogue waves are produced by a number of physical mechanisms that focus the water-wave energy into a small area, due to wave instability, chaotic behaviour, dispersion (frequency modulation), refraction (presence of variable currents or bottom topography), soliton interactions, etc. During the past thirty years a number of physical models of the rogue wave phenomenon have been intensively developed.

It came from nowhere, snapping giant ships in two. until now -New Scientist magazine cover, June 30, 2001 Rogue waves are the focus of this book. They are among the waves naturally - served by people on the sea surface that represent an inseparable feature of the Ocean. Rogue waves appear from nowhere, cause danger, and disappear at once. They may occur on the surface of a relatively calm sea and not reach very high amplitudes, but still be fatal for ships and crew due to their unexpectedness and abnormal features.

During extreme weather events like cyclones and storms, wave formation with important breaking, coastal flooding can cause human and material damage (Xynthia, february 2010). Today, the hydrodynamic modeling related to these extreme events and its consequences are insufficient.

Overall, ‘Extreme Ocean Waves’ is a valuable contribution to the literature on wave theory and statistics, helping fill an important gap in our knowledge of a variety of unusual waves. It should be of great interest to scientists and engineers studying physical oceanography, wave dynamics and observations, nonlinear physics, and applied mathematics. ­­ (Eric L.

Author: Craig B Smith. Publisher: dockside sailing press. Format: PDF. Quality: Scanned pages. This book traces the origins of waves, explaining how calm seas change to stormy seas under the influence of winds, how waves propagate, the effect of currents, tides, and earthquakes, and how ships and offshore structures respond to extreme waves.

University Higher School of Economics Nizhny Novgorod Russia. Extreme water waves investigated in this book involve mainly rogue waves, but tsunami waves and storm waves are also considered. Several catalogues of extreme events like rogue waves observed in the World Ocean have been recently pub-lished. 1 For instance, during 2006–2010, 106 events can be classied as anomalous high short-lived waves. They occurred in deep and shallow waters, and also on the coast.

Extreme, freak or rogue waves are produced by a number of physical mechanisms that focus the water-wave energy into a small area, due to wave instability, chaotic behaviour, dispersion (frequency modulation), refraction (presence of variable currents or bottom topography), soliton interactions, etc.

During the past thirty years a number of physical models of the rogue wave phenomenon have been intensively developed. Numerous experimental, statistical and theoretical investigations are intended to understand the physics of the huge wave formation, its relation to the environmental conditions and to provide a freak wave design for engineering purposes. The book details the vast progress that has been achieved in the understanding of the physical mechanisms of rogue wave phenomenon in recent years.The selected articles address such issues as the formation of freak waves due to modulation instability of nonlinear wave field, physical and statistical properties of rogue wave generation in deep water and in shallow water, various models of nonlinear water waves, special analysis of nonlinear resonances between water waves and the relation between observations and freak wave theories.

The book is written for specialists in the fields of fluid mechanics, applied mathematics, nonlinear physics, physical oceanography and geophysics, and for students learning these subjects.
