A general approach is proposed within which the phase structure of wave perturbations caused by a moving localized source can be described based on the wave dispersion law alone. Using this approach, a simple analytic expression for phase surfaces is obtained, on the basis of which the phase patterns of capillary-gravity waves are studied, as are the structure of ocean wave trains in the wake of a tropical hurricane and the systems of leeward waves in the Earth’s atmosphere.
