The highest recorded open sea wave was measured in February 2000, when the RRS Discovery, (a British oceanographic research vessel), encountered individual waves up to 29.1 metres (95 ft) while in the Rockall Trough, west of Scotland. The European Space Agency satellites also confirmed ten rogue waves, each about 25 metres (82 ft) during a three week period in 2004.
