HIGHWAVE researchers are currently based in two different EU institutions, ENS Paris-Saclay in France and University College Dublin in Ireland. The experiments are being conducted in the vicinity of the Aran Islands, on the west coast of Ireland. One of the main focus points of our research project is the establishment of a wireless telecommunication network that allows the transmission of scientific data, including wave measurements in real-time.
HIGHWAVE is structured in four different work packages
Wave breaking is not just a fascinating scientific topic, it is also an interdisciplinary topic of considerable relevance in transfers between the atmosphere and oceans of substantial economic importance. Why do waves break? How do they dissipate energy and why is this important? A central element of the work builds on recent international developments in the field of wave breaking and wave run-up.
