There are few known mechanisms that lead to the generation of Rogue waves, such as the ones you mentioned, but essentially all Rogue waves are the due to the nonlinear wave dispersion characteristics of large groups of waves. I can imagine one approach to predicting the emergence of such waves is to simulate the evolution of initial wave states with Navier-...

Short answer: Tsunami models use the shallow-wave mathematical approach, because their wavelength is usually much larger than the relevant water depth determining their propagation. Long answer: Tsunamis are often called 'tidal waves' to highlight the idea that their characteristic time response is closer to tydes than to the standard wind waves we are used ...

These are some of the most recent areal photographs taken of this phenomenon. The Morning Glory clouds are the visible manifestation of atmospheric Internal Solitary Waves (see the schematic in (b) below). They propagate on a sharp interface between a relatively dry layer ambient air above and a layer of sea water laden air pushed in from the night before ...

Norfolk Island experienced a tsunami wave 64 cm tall. In Australia the tsunami wave was 10 cm at Tweed Heads and 9 cm at Port Kembla. In Vanuatu the height was 32 cm and in Fiji 13 cm and 8 cm in Tonga. Australian Burea of Meteorology report TSUNAMI DETAILS: The following sea level gauges have observed a tsunami, heights refer to wave amplitudes (positive ...
