Rogue Waves—The Fourteenth 'Aha Huliko'a Hawaiian Winter Workshop

Peter Müller Chris Garrett Al Osborne
First Paragraph

“It came from nowhere, snapping giant ships in two. No one believed the survivors … until now” screamed the cover of New Scientist magazine on 30 June 2001, introducing an article entitled “Monsters of the Deep.” The power and danger suggested by the term “rogue” to describe extreme ocean waves add to the public fascination with these waves. They also presented important and challenging scientific problems and provided the topic of the Fourteenth ‘Aha Huliko’a Hawaiian Winter Workshop convened January 25-28, 2005, at the University of Hawaii, with the support of the Office of Naval Research and the participation of 25 invited speakers.
