Latest Wind wave Stories
As the climate warms and sea ice retreats, the North is changing. An ice-covered expanse now has a season of increasingly open water that is predicted to extend across the whole Arctic Ocean before the middle of this century.
New research of the ocean’s hidden waves was conducted in a lab and in the South China Sea. According to a January 8 report from MIT news, internal waves can be hundreds of feet tall and produce damaging effects to the climate and the ocean’s ecosystem.
Clean custom shaped waves crash into convenience with the Swell, a next generation surf system from Supra Boats. Maryville, TN (PRWEB) November 21, 2013
Deep ocean waves play a vital role in long-term climate cycles and a new study from scientists at the University of Washington has revealed waves the height of skyscrapers circulating energy and nutrients deep below the Southern Pacific Ocean.
A team of scientists from the Universidad Carlos III of Madrid and the University of California - San Diego have created a static pipeline wave in a laboratory.
While it may be easy to blame weathermen when their predictors go horribly, horribly wrong, one US researcher says that the meteorologist may not be to blame – that there are underlying scientific forces at work that can sabotage even the most well-researched forecasts.
An anticlockwise rotation of sea-surface height patterns has been observed near Norway’s west coast. Archived data from radar altimeters on the ERS-1, ERS-2 and Envisat satellites show the wave-like motion around the centre of the Lofoten Basin.
Invisibility cloaking may one day help to shield ships floating around in the ocean from waves, according to research presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Physical Society (APS).
Ocean waves are a source of calming for meditation, and a source of enjoyment for thrill-seeking surfers. But these waves are also a source of wonder for researchers trying to explain the power of the tsunami.
Image Credit: Meteorologist Joshua Kelly When meteorologists are forecasting for ocean-going vessels, there are a few terms that we need to understand. The first term is wavelength. Wavelength is defined as the distance between two crests or between two troughs as seen in the image above. The example above highlights the crest to crest concept of wavelength. The next term that we use is wave height, and to determine this, we first must look at the wave when it passes our station. When...
