"Swash" in context

Swash is a type of waveform which appears often in ocean waves, especially during a storm. It is characterized by a high degree of turbulence and involves both lateral and vertical motions in the wave. As waves move towards the beach, they may encounter underwater obstacles, such as sandbars and underwater objects, which cause the wave to break differently and create a swash. Swash is composed of both a constructive and a destructive wave, and these wave components are responsible for the turbulent motion of the wave. As the wave moves towards the beach, it will break in a way that carries the swash in a shallow onshore direction.
