What happens to a wave as it approaches the shoreline in terms of period, wavelength, speed, frequency, and amplitude?

Period and wavelength decrease, frequency and amplitude increase?

Amplitude increases, period and frequency stay the same, and wavelength and speed decreases. I forgot to mention steepness in the problem; that increases until the wave breaks.
Alright your turn.

How does an arch form in a headland?

The ocean erodes the land until an arch is formed. First it would turn into a cave, though, which is just creating a hole that does not go till the other side. Then the ocean would erode it completely so it is seen from the other side.
to previous question... I do not know how to reply :?: :?:

Here's a question, let's do reefs:

What is the growth rate in centimeters per year for massive corals?
Answer as a range.

What causes a change in wave motion?
