ABSTRACT

Wind generated sea waves are generally regarded as an example of pure randomness in nature. Here we give a proof that the matter is not exactly so: some identical sequences of relatively large waves were found many hours apart from one another. This finding supports the theory of quasi determinism of sea waves.
