Abstract

The Peregrine soliton, which is commonly considered to be a prototype of a rogue wave in deep water, is observed and measured in a wave tank. Using the measured data of water elevation, we calculated the spectra of the Peregrine soliton and confirmed that they have triangular shapes, in accordance with the theory.
