Revisiting Stokes drift: Waves of the future

The 19th-century ‘Stokes drift’ concept that a tiny sphere on a small wave would trace a spiral, not a closed circle, was assumed to be unlikely to occur in nature. But using 21st-century technologies, scientists found that not only do the particles move, they move predictably, and can even be planned.
