Ocean waves play a critical role in shaping our economy, weather and climate

(World Scientific) Leading international researchers share their latest research on ocean wave dynamics. Topics covered include both traditional fields of research for wind-generated waves: air-sea interaction, nonlinear processes, dissipation, extreme value analysis, and those gaining importance more recently: connection of waves with large-scale processes such as ocean mixing and climate. Modern methods for wave research: phase-resolving and spectral wave modelling, satellite remote sensing are also included.

Basically, the uplifting Southern Alps in New Zealand have made stress and strain on the Australian tectonic plate, stress that is then expressed as earthquakes and rising landscapes in Victoria. It’s rather amazing that the caves recorded this geological signal all the way from NZ.
