Wave Pictures

Current Position: 48° N, 139° W

Today was a great day for waves. We measured winds approaching 40 knots (46 mph), and wave heights of about 5 meters (16 ft). We’ve been lamenting how difficult it is to take a picture that shows how rough it has been. No matter how big the wave, or how many whitecaps, the scale never quite comes across. Seeing as how pictures of waves constitutes much of my data, I am used to this disappointment. In a way, this is the point of the stereo video system — I can actually measure the size of the waves. Nevertheless, I wanted to depart from pictures of food to show the stuff we’re out here to see. The wave crashing over the bow was actually from earlier in the trip and comes courtesy of Jarett Goldsmith.
