Rogue waves: formation theory
In the oceans often occur single abnormal waves
of large height. They are a threat to ships and
ocean liners, which come in their way. It was t
ried to find a description of their formation.
In this connection were organized different inter
national programs(EU-project MaxWave). Currently
there’re scientific works, which propose a theo
ry of waves superposition as a cause of killer
1. Theoretically such waves can occasionally
occur by superposition of several waves, see: i
n laboratory was created an abnormal killer-wave.
2. Internet-version of La Stampa published an arti
cle about two gigantic swirls in Atlantic Ocean, which
were founded out by Brazilian and American scientists.
Diameter of every swirl was ca. 400 km. Formation of these
swirls remains an enigma till now. But scientists, who
explore this act of nature, propose a theory about
swirls formation as result of interaction of seve
ral ocean currents. See: Scientists founded out the gigantic s
wirls in Atlantic Ocean.
3. In Norway a formation of single abnormal wave
was experimentally showed in a pool as result of waves superposition.
