The four-story high ‘rogue wave’ in the North Pacific is the most extreme ever recorded

A ROGUE wave recorded off the coast of British Columbia, Canada has just broken records, according to a new report.

The massive wall of water dubbed the Ucluelet wave is 58 feet (or 17.6 meters) tall, according to a new source research published in the journal Nature.

The wave of spoofing, specifically recorded off the coast of Vancouver Island, occurred in November 2020.

According to the study, a spurious wave is defined as “an individual ocean surface wave whose peak height, or bottom-to-peak height, is large relative to the significant wave height of the underlying sea state.”

In this case, the Ucluelet wave is three times larger than the surrounding waves.

Johannes Gemmrich, lead author of the study from the University of Victoria, said: “Proportionally, the Ucluelet wave is possibly the most extreme rogue wave ever recorded. CNN.

“Only a few anomalous waves in high seas states were directly observed and none of this magnitude,” he added.

The scientist also notes that the chance of this happening is about one in every 1,300 years.

Researchers often use buoys to help measure the heights of large waves.

For this study, the MarineLabs buoy – located about 4.3 miles (7 km) off the coast of Ucluelet, British Columbia – was recorded to explode every 20 minutes every 30 minutes.

The researchers then had to further analyze the data through May 21, 2021, to confirm its results.

“Most observations are at a buoy, a single position, and a passing wave, and we know it’s this high by now, but we don’t know for how long,” Gemmrich said. The great question of science”.

Other important questions the researchers hope to answer include understanding how spurious waves form so we can better predict when they will occur.

Although advanced float technology can be a good starting point.

MarineLabs CEO Scott Beatty said: “We are aiming to improve safety and decision-making for marine operations and coastal communities through extensive measurement of coastlines. In the world.

“Capturing this once-in-a-lifetime wave, right in our backyard, is an exciting indicator of the power of coastal intelligence to transform maritime safety,” he added.
