"This volume ...contains extended versions of the lectures that were given at a summerschool in Centre International des Sciences Mećaniques (CISM), Undine, Italy, during the week of 11-15 July, 2005. The subjects of the school covered: the formation of the very long tsunamis, the much shorter rogue waves taking place on the sea surface, very large oceanic internal waves and, finally, internal tides and hot spots in the ocean."
