- Tidal Bore
- Standing Wave
- Wave reflection
- a The reflection of progressive waves by a vertical barrier. Reflection occurs with little loss of energy.
- b a wave in which water oscillates without causing progressive wave forward movement. there is no net transmission of energy in a standing wave
- c These waves move through water shallower than 1/20 their wavelength
- d Nearly friction free transfer of energy from molecule to molecule in a circular path.
- e A high, often breaking wave generated by a tide crest that advances rapidly up an estuary or river.
5 Multiple choice questions
- High water position corresponding to a tidal crest
- 24 hours 50 mins
- water rushing into an enclosed area because of the rise in sea level as a tide crest approaches
- Vertical distance between a wave crest and an adjacent wave trough
- Due to the cold temperature of the water, the water molecules are slightly closer together in this region.
5 True/False questions
Capillary → Waves with a tiny wavelength less than 1.73cm. The restoring force is surface tension.
Transverse → There are five of these boundary currents. They carry cold water towards the equator.
Diuranal → This type of tidal cycle is found commonly in the Gulf of Mexico.
Destructive interference → These transfer heat from tropical to polar regions, distribute nutrients, scatter organisms and influence weather and climate.
Capillary → These waves are the first to form when the wind blows.
