Wave Types and Movement
By: Aly Leiby-Wise
A few wave types
They are high and wide waves, warmer than the surrounding water.
Are made up of a number of waves of different lengths superimposed on each other. They are straight and long, powerful, and travel great distance.
Formed when the wave collapses on top of itself.
Swell Wave Dissapation
The of swell energy is much stronger for short waves, which is why swells from distant storms are only long waves.
It is an extremely long oceanic wave the goes eastward towards South america.
A breaking wave is a wave that when it reaches it maximum level it causes large amounts of wave energy to occur.
