The aim of the session is to describe all aspects of the large-amplitude wave phenomenon in the ocean as the freak, rogue and storm waves: dynamical and statistical theories, observations and modelling, numerical simulations in the framework of approximated theories as well as full nonlinear Euler equations. Special attention will be paid to the description of the wave breaking process, and also large-amplitude wave interaction with coastal
structures.
