Rogue Waves and Tsunami
Lecture no. 15 from the course: Oceanography: Exploring Earth's Final Wilderness
Taught by Professor Harold J. Tobin | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Long considered a mariners' tall tale, abnormally high "rogue" waves are now well documented. Understand the physics of why they form and the yearly toll they take on shipping. Then study tsunami, or seismic sea waves, which are generated when undersea earthquakes displace huge volumes of water, often with catastrophic results.
