This programme comprises two separate case studies. the first describes the classic experiment 'Waves across the pacific', in which Walter Munk and colleagues tracked waves across half the globe Antarctica to Alaska; the second part describes the mega ripples of sand and sediment which move in response to the strong onshore currents in the shallow waters of the North Sea off England's East Anglian coast.
