Rogue waves seem a bit scary. Haven't read a about any damage on the NJ coast yet though (inland or on the water) so that's good. If it was a wave. Nobody was around to see it.


To be honest, it does seem a bit close to the Eastern seaboard for a rogue wave - the main corridor in the North Atlantic is a few islands south of Greenland and just off the coast of Ireland.

Isn't 180ft depth displacement a bit much for a sub? I mean, how exactly would that happen in the open ocean?

I'm gonna guess malfunction.


I had also thought this was a bit off for a sub (unless there is a secret sub that is really realy tall). However, on the same theme, how about that research ship the RV Flip? That raises itself vertically through 90 degrees......IF its in the area, they may not have noticed the buoy.............

The fact that there was no Tsunami as a result of this reading means that there was no change, so the only explanation is a faulty reading.

Regardless of what could have caused a physical reading like that, if it actually moved the water to that degree it would have resulted in a devastating Tsunami.

Nothing physical could have moved the water level like that without it causing a Tsunami. No meteor, no geological collapse beneath, no underwater mine... if it caused the water to move to create that reading a massive Tsunami would have followed.

So, obviously, as this didn't happen, there was no movement of water to cause this, meaning that the only explanation is a faulty reading.

My wife and I went on a family cruise
and she could see the depth guage on a channel the
TV had for guests. It went from 700ft to 11,000 feet very quickly.
She looked pale with fear.
I said Meh..we only need 200 feet to all go down.
That didn't seem to comfort her so being helpful
I said ' its Rogue Waves you have to worry about out here'.
She said "What's a Rogue Wave ?"
Longest 4 day cruise in history.

So I haven't been able to find much else on the issue as even the main source's last post was from yesterday morning. It had to have been a malfunction. I feel like there would be more investigation if there was anything dangerous in question.

What interests me about this report is there were responses to the query as to what may have caused the sudden drop in the buoy's readings instead of an outright, "It was a malfunction."

I just called my wife from California, New Jersey is still there.

Obviously, I cant vouch for the truthfulness of any YouTube video
but I thought you OP, might find it interesting considering the topic.

The description says huge wave anomaly spotted over upper east coast.

Getting an error on the link. Will search the title on YouTube. Thanks!!!

Edit:
Did a search and found the video. Pretty interesting that they had malfunctions earlier on the 13th and removed that channel (not sure what that means) so they can't blame the anomaly on the malfunction channel. Could be that the buoy is still having other issues though.

What is the sensor on that buoy that detects depth? i have actually sailed over that piece of water, and my sensor was...sonar, or to you landlubbers, a fishfinder. it provides a moving chart of the water depth plus marks for fish. but not really, the sonar reflects off the air bladders in fish, showing their location.
So a whale rubbing its back on the buoy chain is going to suddenly show near zero depth...it has big lungs. automatic calibration software on board will reset because it knows the depth is about...1000 feet or whatever. whale goes away...reset again.
ok, my guess.

There is a website that shows the relative radiation levels across the US. Members used to post every time that one of the detectors did a reset. First , it would drop to 0. Then whoosh up to nuke explosion levels . Made for some good doom porn back in the days of ATS.

The same just happened to the wave detector. It was some form of a self re calibration.

RSOE finally has reported it and categorized it as an "other" event. Be interesting to see what transpires.


Thank you ATS for informing me of this situation (and scaring the crap out of me!). LOL

maintenance issue
mic.com...

***However, by Monday it became clear the event measured by the station never actually occurred.

The National Data Buoy Center told WCAU that workers were performing "routine maintenance" on the buoy when the fluctuation in measured ocean levels went out. Normally the devices are deactivated during annual maintenance to prevent false alarms, but in this case the station was left online and transmitting for an unknown reason.

"The Bottom Pressure Recorder (BPR) has a tsunami detection algorithm on board that places the tsunameter in Event Mode," notes the buoy center's website. "Event Mode provides data more frequently — an initial 4 minutes of 15-second with one-minute averaged data for the hour before and the three hours after going into Event Mode. Not every Event is a tsunami ... It requires expert analysis to determine a tsunami from the tsunameter data."***

good catch though. interesting to know.

well if there is a sensor actually sitting on the bottom and tranmitting to the buoy, then my sonar comments do not apply. but clearly sonar would backup the BPr SENSOR.

There is a video on YouTube of a United States aircraft carrier having the crest of a wave crash OVER THE TOP of the flight deck,


Been there seen it happen.

There is a report on Firehouse.com of a brush fire, that was believed to have been caused by a meteor in Maryland.

Good man



The National Data Buoy Center, which is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, said workers were doing routine maintenance on the buoy and they pulled up the bottom pressure recorder, which is why the ocean level readings were abnormally high.

"This routine maintenance caused a data spike on the National Data Buoy Center's website, although there was no tsunami threat present," the National Weather Service said in a statement Monday. "In the event of a real tsunami threat, NOAA's tsunami warning centers will alert the public."

I just read it was due to maintenance, but that's what they will tell us. something normal and explainable, but aliens could have landing in the water and created the "rogue wave" haha just a thought

A 60 metre tsunami surge in the open sea would be the most horrific cataclysm ever visited on mankind.

I hope it's just a playful whale.


Not really there was a 1700 foot (524 Meters) tsunami recorded years ago. A man and his son actually survived it while on their boat. The area it struck fortunately wasn't populated.

geology.com...



On the night of July 9, 1958 an earthquake along the Fairweather Fault in the Alaska Panhandle loosened about 40 million cubic yards (30.6 million cubic meters) of rock high above the northeastern shore of Lituya Bay. This mass of rock plunged from an altitude of approximately 3000 feet (914 meters) down into the waters of Gilbert Inlet (see map below). The impact generated a local tsunami that crashed against the southwest shoreline of Gilbert Inlet. The wave hit with such power that it swept completely over the spur of land that separates Gilbert Inlet from the main body of Lituya Bay. The wave then contiuned down the entire length of Lituya Bay, over La Chaussee Spit and into the Gulf of Alaska. The force of the wave removed all trees and vegetation from elevations as high as 1720 feet (524 meters) above sea level. Millions of trees were uprooted and swept away by the wave. This is the highest wave that has ever been known.

This site has gone to # lately; none the less, posts such as this help me sleep at night knowing that someone, somewhere, is watching the buoy data. I love you man. And thank you ATS.
