The constant mystery of the towering waves of the ocean

At 15:00 on New Year's Day 1995, work on the deck of the Norwegian Draupner oil platform was discontinued, standing isolated in the middle of the stormy North Sea. The wind had become too strong, the waves were blowing and it was no longer safe to be outside. But one wave eclipsed the others. It was 84 feet tall – …

Scientists try to reproduce terribly high "rogue" waves in the lab

A replica Draupner wave Picture: McAllister et al. (JFM) On New Year's Day 1995, an instrument off the coast of Norway measured an 84 meter high rogue wave. Now scientists are producing these waves – albeit in miniature – in the laboratory. Rogue waves like these are not tsunamis. Instead, they are unexpectedly large waves that occur under a population …

Climate change makes the waves stronger

As climate change has gradually heated the oceans around the world, it is also making the ocean waves stronger and more deadly, as a new study published on Monday Nature published. The waves of the upper ocean are driven by local wind patterns that are driven by temperature differences between different layers of air. So when we pump greenhouse gases …

Scientists detect gravitational waves from 4 new black-hole collisions

Astronomers have now made more gravitational wave observations than they can count on their fingers. LIGO and Virgo gravitational-wave observatories scientists report four new groups of these waves in space-time. These additions bring the total to 11, the researchers say in a study published on December 3 on arXiv.org. This represents a major advance since the first gravitational wave detection …
