 The surface, as a topographically extruded wave diffraction pattern, may be manipulated through its internal logic - the wave itself. However, when applied to existing topography, the complexity of wave diffraction will likely never produce a surface that resembles an abstracted diagram of the process. Rather, when considered as a groundwork operation, strategic manipulations (grading and rilling ) interact with wave forces to modulate transfers of energy and material. The estuary is a system of "mixed energy" - a flux of marine (tidal, wave) and riverine energies - and as such, must be considered from both fluid vectors. Accordingly, by differentially "energizing" existing landform through the wave, emergent topographies - both terrestrial and fluid - may be produced with simple logical and engineering techniques.
