i don't know? but i found this:

Rogues come about in different ways, but are almost always generated by storm-related winds, whether near or far.

"The winds transfer energy into the waves," said Peter Challenor, an oceanographer at the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton in Britain.

"Then you get interactions among the waves, with the large ones taking energy from the smaller ones, getting bigger and bigger in the process," he said by phone.

The highest wave ever recorded on the high seas is a 34-meter (112-foot) monster spotted in the Pacific by a U.S. Navy-chartered tanker in the 1920s.

the 200 supertanker comment leads me to believe "insurance scam" of high seas proportions

"But for years these tales of towering beasts were written off as fantasy; and many marine scientists clung to statistical models stating monstrous deviations from the normal sea state occur once every 1,000 years."


THE THREE STAGES OF TRUTH

It would appear to be an indelible human trait that the 'truth' about all issues goes through three distinct phases known colloquially as "the three stages of truth". During the first stage, the issue goes unnoticed and is ignored. The second stage is characterised by a period of vehement denial. The third stage witnesses the the truth about the issue being recognised as self evident.

Examples of this sort of thing a legion. Thus for example, five hundred years ago contemporary Western (meaning European) society believed that the Earth was flat and at the centre of the Universe and anyone who had the temerity to suggest otherwise was invariably burnt at the stake. It wasn't until the Magellan expedition's circumnavigation of the globe in 1522 that the reality of a round Earth was finally acknowledged as being "self evident".

The reason why 'truth' goes through these three stages is that humans in general are very reluctant to give up their beliefs as to the nature of reality because they have invested a lifetime of expense and effort in arriving at those beliefs. Acknowledging that their perception of reality may no longer be applicable in the light of new evidence usually presents humans with the uncomfortable choice of dispensing with a paradigm that they have become used to - and which has probably worked for them quite satisfactorily to date - in favour of a something new and yet to be properly defined. Few humans have the strength of character to pursue such a course of action as it usually results in considerable personal discomfit associated with a lack of supporting structures around new ideas and a fear of the unknown, not to mention the vociferous ridicule they can expect from their contemporaries towards anything new. This situation is exacerbated by the fact that those who question society's prevailing orthodoxy are by definition dissenters who, by "rocking the boat", tend to threaten the very lifestyle, comfort and income of those around them who hold to the prevailing orthodox position. It is for this reason why dissenters have been relentlessly pursued and persecuted throughout history by their contemporaries.

Nice find Malu, it may be dated, but in light of things the perspective of time increases its relevance.

 Quoting: Mr Duh 913388


Have a poke around the ESA site; you're a big boy now:
[link to www.esa.int]


"To prove the phenomenon or lay the rumours to rest, a consortium of 11 organisations from six EU countries founded MaxWave in December 2000.

As part of the project, Esa tasked two of its Earth-scanning satellites, ERS-1 and ERS-2, to monitor the oceans with their radar.

The radars sent back "imagettes" - pictures of the sea surface in a rectangle measuring 10 by 5km (6 by 2.5 miles), which were taken every 200km (120 miles).

Around 30,000 separate imagettes were produced by the two satellites during a three-week period in 2001 - and the data was mathematically analysed.

Esa says the survey revealed 10 massive waves - some nearly 30m (100 ft) high."

This is an old article right? I heard about this from NASA publication over two years ago. It has some theories behind the cause.

Something about wave frequencies can freakishly collide travelling in opposite directions every so often.

Y'all!

What about that "rogue" wave, as they called it, that just slammed into that French cruise ship last week or so?

Said to be at least 25 feet high - - can you imagine seeing that coming at you?

And it killed 2 people on the ship!
