A Note on the second-order contribution to extreme waves generated during hurricanes

Abstract:

High wind speeds generated during hurricanes result in the formation of extreme waves. Extreme waves by nature are steep meaning that linear wave theory alone is insufficient in understanding and predicting their occurrence. The complex, highly transient nature of the direction of wind and hence of waves generated during hurricanes affects this nonlinear behaviour. Herein, we examine how this directionality can affect the second-order nonlinearity of extreme waves generated during hurricanes....
