The following is a summary of a weeklong seminar at the Fondation des Treilles held October 8 – 13, 2012. The subject was Extreme Sea Waves, meaning waves that are unusual, and may lead to material or human losses. The research presentations combined numerical, modelling, stochastic and analytical techniques, mainly focussed on “rogue” waves, tsunamis and internal waves.
The productive exchange of ideas generated new insights and focussed attention on important questions.
Keywords: tsunamis, rogue waves, computational methods, internal waves, statistical models.
