Great Waves!

All sorts of wave animations, (and more) by Dan Russell

One of many examples:
Longitudinal and Transverse Wave Motion
Mechanical Waves are waves which propagate through a material medium (solid, liquid, or gas) at a wave speed which depends on the elastic and inertial properties of that medium. There are two basic types of wave motion for mechanical waves: longitudinal waves and transverse waves. The animations below demonstrate both types of wave and illustrate the difference between the motion of the wave and the motion of the particles in the medium through which the wave is travelling.

Hyperlink found on pg 17 of Arend Lammertink’s, On Space, Time and the Fabric of Nature, https://steemit.com/science/@lamare/on-space-time-and-the-fabric-of-nature,
“And actually, water waves are a combination of both longitudinal and transverse motions, which can be beautifully animated”
