Waves are one of the most beautiful and awe-inspiring natural phenomena.

They are commonly formed by wind, and are created due to the friction between the surface water and the wind.

As wind blows across the surface of the ocean or a lake, the continual disturbance creates a wave crest.

The literary word for the sound sea waves make when they lash the shores, is called ‘susurration‘. 

Ocean waves are essential for forecasting weather and climate modelling.

Waves are disturbances on the surface of the water, which can be formed on all types of water bodies.

Waves are classified according to their formation, source of energy and behaviour.

They are important for the livelihoods of coastal communities and determine shipping routes.
