Waves slow down as they enter the shallow parts of water. These waves approach the
coastline at an angle hence causing a portion of the wave to reduce speed. The section of wave
closest to the shoreline slows down early as the rest of the wave in deep water moves at a
breakneck speed. This phenomenon causes bending in the wave crest due to a contrast in the
speed, an activity known as wave refraction (Salt Lake, 2019)...
