Séminaire IRPHE

Do real world rogue waves break or grow beyond bounds ?

Orateur : Francesco Fedele / Georgia Institute of Technology, USA

Abstract : I present my latest studies aimed at refining present understanding of rogue waves and their space-time ocean statistics. The physical mechanisms of rogue waves formation are explored in the context of the marginal state of wave breaking onset and the role of the crest slowdown phenomenon. Wave dispersion is nonlinearly suppressed at large amplitudes, and the crest slowdown is limited inhibiting the growth of potential energy. The theoretical studies are supported by a statistical characterization of extreme waves based on stereo-video ocean measurements and numerical simulations.

Date et lieu : Vendredi 01/07 à 11h, salle de séminaires IRPHE.
