Wave killer «identified» in the Russian group the best researchers of the world
Irina Didenkulova is a Laboratory simulation of natural and man-made disasters Nizhny Novgorod state technical University n. a. R. E. Alekseev. Her work has been devoted to the study of tsunamis, rogue waves and storm surges.
Studying the coastal zone of Okhotsk, North and Baltic seas, Irina came to the conclusion that its development can be applicable to other coastal regions. Among the most important issues of her research can highlight of freak waves, which are still difficult to predict. But the scientist hopes that her work will help in the future to develop a series of preventive measures that will help reduce the amount of damage and number of casualties.
«I have been compiled the first catalogue of rogue waves in the ocean, — says Irina, — and the directory tsunamiready phenomena in the internal waters of Russia, which are important for assessing the frequency of occurrence of natural disasters».
It is interesting that, for the same work in 2014, Irina was awarded the UNESCO prize, but as a representative of the national group. Now, two years later, for the same work it was awarded in a more prestigious nomination, calling it the best among the representatives of 15 other countries.
