The general expression for the speed of a water wave is given by:

[tex]v = \sqrt{\frac{g\lambda}{2\pi}\,tanh(2\pi\frac{d}{\lambda}})[/tex]

which simplifies in the shallow depth limit into

[tex]v = \sqrt{gd}[/tex]

so,

v=freq x wavelength

Thus double the frequency the wavelength is halved in shallow water.

v=freq x wavelength

Thus double the frequency the wavelength is halved in shallow water.
