Short summary
Waves obtain energy from wind; they grow and increase in size and speed of propagation. The structure of wave fields becomes complicated due to appearance of new wave components. Finally, the sea surface looks like a poorly organized motion consisting of quickly running large hills and hollows covered with smaller waves. This process can be successfully simulated on computers. Such investigations allow us to understand the physics of sea waves, which is important for practice.
