|National Geographic Xpeditions Wave Heights|
Students investigate parts of ocean waves and their measurements. An on-line wave simulator allows then to study the effects of wave height, length and period on a boat's movements. Using records of tsunami waves, students compare these heights to familiar landmarks and test a hypothesis about possible relationships between wave height and ocean size and depth.
