Directional wave spectrum at the Prestige accident location

Directional wave spectrum of the bimodal sea state close of the time where the Prestige accident took place. The spectrum shows a crossed bimodal sea state resulting on the supperposition of a wind sea and a swell wave system (from: Trulsen, K., Nieto Borge, J.C., Gramstad, O., Aouf, L., Lefèvre, J.-M., 2015, “Crossing sea state and rogue wave probability during the Prestige accident”Journal of Geophysical Research: Oceans, 120 (10), 7113–7136, doi:10.1002/2015JC011161.).
