Hello Gnees Army,
In Normal, You see these types of weaves in the water like this below!
But Did you familiar with these types of weaves?
Yes! It is square-shaped! But is this weaves really exist? or, just science fiction?
No, it’s not science fiction, though it is very rare it really happens in our world. It is strangely shaped into a square pattern, looking like a chessboard that is perfectly displayed on the surface of the ocean. So the question is,
How Square weaves are formed?
Square waves create when the wind from one side continues to move & clash with the wind moving from the opposite side.
This is called a cross-sea, as these two seas that join in this area have different weather patterns and weather systems. The weathers create different wave patterns and they clash for an extended period of time. Then the waves begin to form squares.
Why are square waves dangerous?
While this natural phenomenon is absolutely stunning looking, the square waves caused by the cross-sea is incredibly dangerous to be in, as the riptide and rip currents are stronger than what the average person has ever experienced and has caused boating accidents and shipwrecks.
What you should do if you experienced or see these types of conditions?
It could mean DANGER for most swimmers and surfers if they find themselves out there when this happens. If you’re in the water and you see a square wave forming, you should get out of the water immediately to avoid the powerful riptides that could pull you away from different angles.
Where it mostly found?
The most famous place in the world for watching square waves is Île de Ré (Isle of Rhé) in France.
It is a small island strip just 19 miles long and three miles wide, there are a specific set of waves that beautifully display the force of nature at its most potent.
These cross waves is so mesmerizing and beautiful that maximum tourists go to the lighthouse to take a look at the fantastic display at the highest elevation!
Luckily, the weather doesn’t affect the ocean into creating the cross-sea all of the time, so the waters of the Isle are deemed relatively safe for tourists visiting the resort town.
