    I dont like waves on body of water.
    So, can anybody suggest any way to stop immediately all the waves formed on all oceans in this world.
    Should we increase density or viscosity of water to get this result.
    So guys can I get this dream of mine fulfilled?
    Hey I dont want all ocean water to be frozen to get this "levelling effect". I want to see not even a single wave.
    If all waves are eliminated/silenced/ended what will be effect on the bio life flourishing inside oceans.

    Note: This is ideal scenario. Dont consider me mad. I am just curious.

    If you wanted to stop waves, you would have to stop global wind currents. This would devastate life across the globe as it requires ending a mechanism of energy transference for our entire planet.

    Doesn't our moon influence the size of ocean waves?

    It influences tides, but waves are primarily a factor of winds. Except for tsunami events, which are driven by tectonic movements.

    Excellent, reply. I had that in my mind before I started this thread. That moon thing also(pineapples).
    If waves stopped will ocean water be stagnant. Will ocean currents end? Will fish die? And what about sailing of Ships?

    The problem is that you're trying to stop a small part of a larger cycle. You can't just end waves. Waves are a product of wind, which is a product of pressure differentials and influenced by the rotation of Earth... These things are all interconnected and you cannot simply alienate a single aspect.

    It somewhat relates to one of my favorite Sagan quotes; "If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first create the universe."

    ... and the wind currents are caused by the Sun's thermal rays hitting the equatorial belt more squarely (ie, more insolation) than at the poles, so you'd need to turn off the Sun or block it's rays or counteract them.

    So, its becoming messier the deeper we go into solving problem of waves.

    Why would you consider waves a "problem"? They are simply a product of a dynamic system.
