The energy in a wind generated wave is usually half as deep as the wave height. This is why they diminish easily. There is not enough energy to push the water. They also generally have a wave length of a few meters at best. This is why they do not push on shore very far.

Wind generated waves

CAUSESwind generated waves cause the water to "pile up". With the long wave length, this makes the water come on shore for extended periods of time.

EFFECTSThis will cause natural disasters, like tsunamis, to happen each and every day.
