On the modelling of huge water waves called rogue waves

Abstract

The chapter focuses on the physics and modelling of the extreme water wave events called rogue waves. A particular attention is paid to their formation in presence of strong wind. Two mechanisms producing the giant waves are considered: The dispersive spatio-temporal focusing and the modulational instability. In both cases an amplification of the height and duration of the rogue wave event is observed under wind action.
