Waves Docsity.com Waves • When undisturbed by wind (or some other factor such as an earthquake), the sea surface is naturally smooth! • Waves are moving energy and begin as a disturbance – Wind blowing across the surface of the ocean generates most waves – Tides, turbidity currents, coastal landslides, calving icebergs, and sea floor movement can also cause waves Docsity.com Waves • In an ocean wave, energy is moving at the speed of the wave, but water is not! • Waves move energy, with very little movement of particles (including water particles!) • The water ‘associated’ with a wave does not move continuously across the sea surface! Docsity.com • Imagine a seagull resting on the ocean surface • The bird moves in circles – up and forward as the tops of the waves move toward its position, and down and backward as tops of the waves move past • Energy in the waves flows past the bird, but the gull and it’s patch of water move only a short distance Each..
