570-573 ) Most ocean waves are caused directly or indirectly by wind blowing across the sea surface. Many waves can propagate through the ocean thousands of miles from where they are generated. Ocean surface waves are propagating disturbances at the atmosphere-ocean interface. They are the most familiar ocean waves. Surface waves are also seen on other bodies of water, including lakes and rivers.” ( Wimbush, Mark, Benfer, Neil A., Cox, Charles S., and Clarke, Allan J. 2014) Insert Picture Here 4

How the concept is displaying itself in this location There are two types of movements. The first is the oscillation of the medium moved by the wave, which in this case is a circular movement. The second is the propagation of the wave, which occurs because the energy is transmitted with it, transferring the phenomenon with a direction and speed, called in this case, wave speed. In this way the concept of waves is represented. The waves can vary in size, volume and intensity. The waves can also be created by volcanic activities, the increase in the tide, or by tectonic movements. 5

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
