Total found two distinct types of waves — X-shaped and U-shaped, so called because of the form that takes water mass.

Through his research in the natural environment, the scientists saw that the conventional direct waves in the interaction form a different type of waves, X-or Y-type. Thus, if closer to the coast during the
