Scientists said on Wednesday that Australia's vast coastline is increasingly being battered by destructive "extreme waves" driven in part by climate change. Government experts said research into wave size changes over the past 45 years showed waves of 3 meters (9.8 feet) in height or more were increasing, hitting Australia's southern coasts as severe storms become more frequent and intense. "Extreme wave conditions are greatest south of the Australian continent, associated with the passage of...

A drainage divide, water divide, divide, or watershed is the line that separates neighboring drainage basins. In flat country the divide may be invisible (just a notional line on the ground either side of which water starts its journey to different waterways). While, in hilly country, the divide lies along peaks and ridges. Drainage divides are important geographical, and sometimes political boundaries. Roads and railways often follow divides to minimize slopes and marshes and rivers....
