Sweet SE is no longer dominant. A fading memory, imo. The times they are a-changin'. Nature bats last... A new study focused on the energy contained in ocean waves, which is transmitted from the wind and transformed into wave motion. This metric, called wave power, has been increasing in direct association with historical warming of the ocean surface. The upper ocean warming, measured as a rising trend in sea-surface temperatures, has influenced wind patterns globally, and this, in turn, is making ocean waves stronger. *Wave Power has increased globally by .4% per year since 1948...
