Vertical distance from wave trough to crest.
Amplitude; the vertical distance between wave crest and trough.
Vertical distance between the wave crest and wave trough.
The height of a wave from the top of the wave crest to the bottom of the wave trough. But ocean waves come in many different heights and shapes. To measure these significant wave height is often used. This is the average of the highest one third of waves, taken over an area of the ocean, or over a period of time.
The vertical distance from the trough to the crest of a wave.
The vertical distance between a wave drest and the next trough.
Vertical difference between a wave's crest and trough; higher waves are more energetic and can cause rapid beach changes.
The vertical distance between the trough and crest of a wave. It is double the amplitude.
the vertical distance between the wave trough and the preceding crest.
Once all the zero up-crossing waves in a wave record have been defined, certain features of the individual waves can be determined. One such feature is wave height (in metres), which is the vertical distance between the crest of a wave and the following trough. Wave heights are shown as H1, H2, H3, …, in the sample wave record figure, Figure 2.
the vertical distance between the crest (highest point) and trough (lowest point) of a wave.
Distance from wave trough to wave crest.
The vertical distance between the crest and the preceding trough of a wave.
The vertical distance between crest and trough. See range of tide.
The vertical distance between a wave trough and a wave crest.
The height of a water-surface wave generally taken as the difference between the wave crest and preceding trough.
The vertical distance between a wave crest and the preceding trough.
