Rogue Waves And Analogies In Optics And Oceanography


Rogue Waves And Analogies In Optics And Oceanography

According to the records, a rogue wave was seen to rise to sixty meters in the Charleston, SC Gulf stream, also known as killer waves, have been a part of mariners for over decades. Rogue waves usually occur in times of heavy storm and are way bigger than the surrounding waves. They are predictive waves and often might come from any direction without prior notice.

What Rogue Waves Look Like?

Some people say that these waves are like a steep wall and can be extremely dangerous for ships. Moreover, such rogue waves are totally uncommon and extremely rare. The deep troughs and the steep wall have got it one common name “walls of water.” Huge waves often raise a large volume of water, which travels through the ocean at different speeds and directions. 

Formation Of Rogue Waves

While traveling along the ocean, the crests and troughs intersect to form large and uncommon strong waves commonly known as rogue waves. Often a shortening of wave frequency occurs when a storm develops in the ocean. The waves develop against a normal wave in any direction. This, causing the adjoining of waves and forming these waves. The huge waves are usually found in Gulf Stream or Agulhas current. 

Analogy On How And Why It Occurs

Many years ago, an analogy was prepared among the propagation of light fields in optical fibers and the formation of large ocean waves. The analogy resulted in various studies prepared by people after experimenting in both cases. The techniques use real-time measurements in optics. Whereas, in oceanography, real-world ocean data and insights are taken into consideration. 

Experiments To Understand The Hydrodynamics

Often people try experiments on large wave tanks. The article is a review of the hydrodynamic’s, which include the linear and non-linear interpretations of rogue formation in the ocean. However, the optics include a brief explanation of the overall area that the research is on. The techniques of measurement that we develop to study the dissipative system of soliton. Here in this article, we discuss the results of the analogies and the limits of constructing the scenes of the oceanic waves in the real world.

Results Of The Analogy Between Optical Fibres And Wave Propagation

The experiment provides a wide range of in-depth knowledge of the features and mechanisms that result in the causes of these waves. 

There are techniques to measure in real-time and the study of the unstable fiber optics. It highlights the sudden occurrence of these huge waves and the structures of focusing non-linear. This shows a confirmed occurrence of in-tank waves experiment.

The dissipative soliton in lasers and various dynamics are the highlights of the rogue waves experiment in optical fibers. 

Another result of this experiment has shown the directional role and position of sudden and random trains of rogue waves in the ocean. The direction also plays a big role in the optical experiment. 

However, the rogue waves can form from both linear and non-linear mechanisms. These at be at various degrees depending upon the sea conditions and wind directions.

Use Of AI And Machine Learning For Predicting Rogue Waves In Future

The future of sea forecast lies in the hands of machine learning and artificial intelligence. With this, you can identify the early prediction of these waves. The areas for analogy and a lap between the hydrodynamic and optics can be identified.
