Surface waves are created by disturbance forces applied to a specific area. It can be either the wind, a surface vessel moving through the water, an earthquake, landslides, a splash, gravity (as it is the case for tides), or any combination of them. When studying ocean waves, we consider them to be the superimposition of single sinusoidal waves with different frequencies and amplitudes.
