Freak Edge Waves

Pelinovsky, Pelinovsky, E, E, Lechuga, Lechuga, al., A., Lechuga, Antonio
The nonlinear and unsteady dynamics of the edge waves is discussed. Two physical processes: dispersive focusing and nonlinear modulational instability, are studied. Both mechanisms can induce the appearance of the short-living large-amplitude isolated waves and intense wave packets (“freak edge waves”).
