Latest Wave Stories
US scientists believe they have made great headway in understanding what have been termed, freak waves.
Stories of ships mysteriously sent to watery graves by sudden, giant waves have long puzzled scientists and sailors. New research by San Francisco State professor Tim Janssen suggests that changes in water depth and currents
Research at the University of Liverpool has shown it is possible to develop an â€˜invisibility cloakâ€™ to protect buildings from earthquakes.
- Pro audio algorithms bring new depth to all-in-one desktop computer sound - TEL-AVIV, Israel, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Waves has announced that its MaxxAudio sound enhancement algorithms are now being implemented by Fujitsu in 3 new models.
Those are some of the sounds that have been missing from computer graphic simulations of water and other fluids, according to researchers in Cornell's Department of Computer Science, who have come up with new algorithms to simulate such sounds to go with the images.
Anybody who observes waves can see that they are not the same height in winter and summer, but rather that their height varies over time, and we have applied a 'non- seasonal' statistical model in order to measure extreme events such as these.

Doppler Effect -- The Doppler effect is the apparent change in frequency or wavelength of a wave that is perceived by an observer moving relative to the source of the waves. For waves, such as sound waves, that propagate in a wave medium, the velocity of the observer and the source are reckoned relative to the medium in which the waves are transmitted. The total Doppler effect may therefore result from both motion of the source and motion of the observer. Each of these effects is analyzed...
