For the calculation of steep water waves, a Lagrangian method is presented. This makes it easier to derive and understand the complicated non-linear structure of the equations of motion (EOM), for the behaviour of water surfaces. In addition, this formulation offers the possibility to model an EOM which describes water waves with deference to variation in depth.
