Progressive Waves: The waves which move with a steady speed are called progressive waves. They are of two types:
- Capillary Waves: These are formed when the wind creates pressure over capillarity.
- Orbital Waves: These are the result of the merging of two liquid forms having different densities.
Refracted waves: These travel in shallow water, the shallowness of the water reduces the power of the wave and it takes a curved path.
Seismic Waves: They are also known as tsunamis, they happen when there is an earthquake on the ocean floor. These carry a lot of energy and cause massive damage to the land.
