Two waves that are five minutes apart in the ocean, traveling the same speed, will hit land five minutes apart as well.
False. The speed of the wave is determined by the depth of the water relative to the amplitude of the peak. As the wave approaches a shoreline, the first period will shorten and therefore the wave peaks will hit, probably dramatically, less than 5 minutes apart.
