how does waves form?

by wind blowing over the sea, friction with the surface of water causes ripples that develop into waves.

Tsunamis form when earthquakes or volcanoes shake the seabed

What happens as waves aproach the shore?

- there is a circular orbit in open water 

- friction with seabed distorts circular motion

-crest of waves move faster as water
