1. ### Describe the transition of deep -water waves into surf?

As deep ocean waves reach the shoreline, the shallow bottom causes the height to increase, the length to...

2. ### What happens when a deep -water wave strikes the bottom of the ocean?

A Deep -Water wave action or reaction would vary according to the surface at the bottom of the deep . Sand, sediment, rock, and other surfaces absorb or repel energy differently.

3. ### How do I get my waves deeper ?

Ah! You need more amplitude. Since the energy of the wave is proportional to the amplitude, you need to get more energy into generating...

4. ### Why do deep water waves sometimes break instead of just getting bigger?

Water "particles" move in a circular pattern in deep water, with the "axis" parallel to the direction of motion of the wave and the circle is vertical (like a bicycle tire in motion). As the wave ...

5. ### Are tides considered deep -water waves anywhere in the ocean? Why or why not?

I do not think so, but it depends on what the definition of deep water waves would be. The tides are effectively a giant wave with a period...

6. ### Describe how a wave changes as it moves from deep water toward the shore.?

Waves in deep water move in circles but as it approaches the shore the wave shortens and "breaks." It becomes steeper and begins to curl over before it crashes on the shore

7. ### what is the meaning of internal waves and deep seas?

...and atmosphere, where they create wave clouds. Nonlinear solitary internal waves are called solitons The deep sea, or deep layer,[1] is the lowest layer in the ocean, existing...

8. ### As waves pass, an object floating in deep water will

D - Until the wave moves close to a shore (and therefore shallow water), the surface does not actually move along, the water stays in the same position, it just moves up and down. The object in the water would therefore do the same.

9. ### Tides are always shallow-water waves even though their crests pass directly over the deepest parts of the ocea?

Shallow water waves are defined as waves traveling in depths less than 1/20th of ... s circumference. No part of the ocean is that deep .
