Do currents affect the size of waves?

    The size of the wave depends on the wind, including its strength, duration, and fetch, or the distance over which the wind blows. The ocean current in directed by the forces that influence it, including the Earth’s rotation, wind, temperature, salinity and tides caused by the gravitational pull. In essence, wave size and currents are two separate entities, although similar factors such as the wind, can affect both.
