Waves and Beaches: The Dynamics of the Ocean Surface

The sea attacks relentlessly, marshaling the force of its powerful waves against the land's strongest points.

It collects the energy of distant winds and transports it across thousands of miles of open ocean as a quietly rolling swell.

On nearing the shore, this calm disguise is suddenly cast off, and the waves rise in angry breakers, hurling themselves against the land in a final furious assault.

The two combatants - waves and beaches - are the heroes of this book.

Written by Willard Bascom.
