Latest Wind wave Stories
A new mathematical formula that could be used to give advance warning of where a tsunami is likely to hit and how destructive it will be has been worked out by scientists at Newcastle University.
MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Newly-elected state congressman Erik Paulsen (R) stopped in Third Wave Systems' headquarters today for a discussion of the company's engineering and technology advancements. During his visit, the congressman visited with TWS administrators and Board members.
Wind and wave data from ESAâ€™s Envisat satellite radar are being used to observe meteorological conditions in the track of the Vendee Globe solo round-the-world yacht race.
We're starved for clean energy when it is all around us, in the air, water and even the earth. We'd have plenty if we could figure out how to collect it. But technological development must overcome some formidable challenges, especially to mine the powerful energy in water.
By Kristin S. Agostoni An artificial reef that was supposed to help bring surfable waves back to Dockweiler Beach is slated for removal within the coming weeks, ending an experiment that began more than a decade ago.
The European Space Agency said its Earth observation satellite Envisat is being used to help track Hurricane Ike as it travels across the Gulf of Mexico.
Residents along the Gulf Coast are bracing for Hurricane Ike as it travels over the Gulf of Mexico after ripping through Cuba and Haiti. ESAâ€™s Envisat satellite is tracking the storm, which is forecast to make landfall on the Texas coast by 13 September.
Scientists said on Wednesday that Australia's vast coastline is increasingly being battered by destructive "extreme waves" driven in part by climate change.
Following the extremely hot weather conditions hitting Europe, Norway experienced its biggest forest fire in the last half century earlier this month. Envisat satellite images were used in the fireâ€™s aftermath to get an overview of the damaged area for authorities and insurance companies.
Data from faint earth tremors caused by wind-driven ocean wavesâ€”often dismissed as â€œbackground noiseâ€ at seismographic stations around the worldâ€”suggest extreme ocean storms have become more frequent over the past three decades, according to research presented at the annual meeting of the Seismological Society of America.
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...
