Short Description

Grade level: Middle (6-8), High (9-12), Under graduate (13-16)

Statement: Global Wave Power

Abstract: This animation follows global wave power as a function of waves for the months of January and February of the year 2000.

Theory

Gravity driven waves (swell) conserve energy as they move through the worlds oceans. Thus it is possible to track ocean energy as it moves through the worlds oceans and interacts with land forms.

Wave power is approximately calculated as E=.125(pgH^2). Where E is energy, p is the density of water, g is acceleration due to gravity and H is wave height.
