Thanks for posting. A more detailed text is there: The Making of the Andrea Wave and other Rogues : Scientific Reports

Re: Rogue Wave Study

I'm not sure if it was an "Andrea" wave, but years ago while flying with my father over the Santa Barbara channel on a breezy day he leaned the plane over and said, "look at that!" Among the white caps was one very large and long breaking wave just rolling along, significantly larger than all others but we had no way to measure it, of course. It eventually subsided and melted into the crowd, but it sure left an impression on me!

Re: Rogue Wave Study

interesting reading. But seem inadequate.

Article does not touch length of existence of a rogue wave, 1 min 5 min, 1 day etc ... If created by interaction of other wave systems, expiry should be fast. Or once they formed, just keep going ?

Also width - how wide is the front.

That pic is cool.

Active steering can probably help avoiding them a bit, during day and clear night. However, one cannot steer around rogue holes

Re: Rogue Wave Study

well two or three waves converging from different angles will be a sudden lifting of amplitude, and then the wave separate and go their own way, but if waves are close enough in direction, speed and phase and merge gradually it's possible for the waves to join rather permanently through entrainment. Otherwise, the waves will separate out again at the same speed direction and phase as when they began to merge. That could actually be several minutes of time before the waves can be recognized as separate waves again.

Re: Rogue Wave Study

The Grand Unified Theory of Rogue Waves
Rogue waves enigmatic giants of the sea were thought to be caused by two different mechanisms. But a new idea that borrows from the hinterlands of probability theory (Large Deviation Theory - LDT) has the potential to predict them all.
Sailors, facing an imminent storm, dont have years to study the growing waves around them, but the new framework represents small steps toward the long-term goal for rogue wave prediction machinery that scans the ocean and sounds the alarm when its time to batten down the hatches. LDT tools, once theyre modified for the open ocean, could be one way, for those on boats like the Mnchen, to know the moment a rogue wave starts focusing.

Re: Rogue Wave Study

Here is a recent article including a video from Oxford researchers on how waves crossing at ~120 degrees can create a "Great wave".
