Deutsch: Das Bild zeigt eine realistische Störung der Wasseroberfläche (durch kurzes Eintauchen eines Stabes) und die Ausbreitung dieser Störung durch Kreiswellen von eingeschränkter Konzentrizität und deren Überlagerungen. Der flache Beleuchtungswinkel gibt dem Wasser ein fast metallisches Aussehen.
English: Surface waves of water: expansion of a disturbance. – It shows a realistic disturbance (caused by shortly dipping a stick into the water) and its expansion forming interfering circles of limited concentricity. The near metallic appearance of the water's surface is due to the small angle of illumination.
Français : Ondes de surface sur de l'eau : L'expansion d'une perturbation. On observe une perturbation réaliste (due à un bâton) et son expansion sous la forme d'ondes interférentes et grossièrement concentriques. L'aspect quasi métallique de l'eau est dû à une lumière rasante.
Português: Ondas de superfície de Água: A expansão de um distúrbio. É mostrada a perturbação realística (causada por um bastão) e sua expansão formando círculos de interferência aproximadamente concêntricos. A aparência metálica da superfície é resultante do baixo ângulo de iluminação.
