Anyone having watched water waves rippling outward from the point where a stone was thrown in should have noticed how effortlessly waves can propagate along the water’s surface. Wherever we see water we see its surface stirred by waves. Indeed, witnessing a lake or sea flat like a mirror is rather unusual. Yet, as familiar we are with waves we are unfamiliar with how water particles can join natural forces to create such waves.

On this website, you can learn how waves are created and how they behave. Go on a jourey across the ocean and learn to understand the basic principles behind all surface waves.
