Therefore, we define the line problem for a water wave as follows:
falling forward) on the water wave generated by the swimmer; bigger waves travel horizontally faster (with speeds proportional to the wave length to the power of 1/2, just like the swimmer's speed); bigger (i.e.
"These structures get excited upstream and they start to grow and steepen, kind of like a water wave. But instead of breaking and tumbling over, they stand up, getting bigger and faster," said Wilson.
The five foot high water wave led to the deaths of Bootle holiday-makers Kenneth and Mary Hall, on October 21 last year.

The model configuration was different at each level of simulations but as regards the generation area the emphasis was put on the whitecapping which is still considered the weak link in deep water wave modelling.
The 'Inner Care Storm' feature generates a powerful multi-directive water wave for better washing performance and less tangling while the Outer Power Storm creates stronger water flow to effectively scrub off dirt, greasy stains and detergent residue in the fabric.

(I obtained this wave from some material I had cut up.) I asked the students to imagine themselves participating in some activity on a water wave. We discussed some activities that would be fun to do.
