Abstract

There has been speculation that energy input (wind) can play an important role in the formation of rogue waves in the open ocean. Here we examine the role energy input can play by adding energy to the modified non-linear Schrödinger equation. We consider NewWave type wave-groups with spectra which are realistic for wind waves. We examine the case where energy input is added to the group as the wave-group focuses. We consider whether this energy input can cause significant non-linear effects to the subsequent spatial and spectral evolution. For the parameters considered here we find this to have only a small influence.
