Super roguewaves : observation of a higher-order breather inwaterwaves

Amin Chabchoub, Norbert Hoffmann, Miguel Onorato & Nail N. Akhmediev
Super rogue waves with an amplitude of up to 5 times the background value are observed in a waterwave tank for the first time. Nonlinear focusing of the local wave amplitude occurs according to the higher-order breather solution of the nonlinear wave equation. The present result shows that rogue waves can also develop from very calm and apparently safe sea states. We expect the result to have a significant impact on studies of extreme ocean...
