Mangroves are important as they anchor on the soil and absorb and dissipate the energy of waves
by 70 percent, thus slowing their passage inland and preventing significant damage to coastal communities, "remarked Dr.
The beach will be protected from future storms through salt marsh planters and wetlands, as well as stone ripraps and wave attenuation walls to absorb the impact energy of waves
The data model that the machine uses to measure the potential energy of waves
is being made an industry standard by EnergyNet, proving the theoretical concepts underlying Wavestar's calculations.
The Pelamis concept is to absorb the energy of waves
and convert that into electricity.
The energy of waves
, tides, currents, and temperature and salinity gradients can be harnessed by existing technologies, and could some day be a more widespread source of power.
