It would have been nice to learn which particular ocean currents are most likely to spawn rogue waves, and where, since currents are not of constant velocity throughout their length, nor do they maintain constant orientation. Should one suspect the Gulf Stream
in a strong north wind
to generate anything more than steep short waves, for example? Perhaps someone can apply the results of this study to practical prediction of, at least, rogue wave
probabilities in various parts
of the oceans. The predictions should be supported by physical evidence if the theory has real value.
