Dear Mr. Science,
What makes waves?
Scott, age 8
What a great question! Waves are made by wind blowing against the waters surface. The stronger the winds the bigger the waves. However, tidal waves or tsunamis are different in the fact that those waves are created by underground earthquakes, volcanoes, or landslides.
Keep those questions coming!
