A question here

There are signs that in the past there was liquid water on Mars. So lets assume thats true.
Since the gravity on Mars is much lower than on Earth, so how does water (waves) behave on Mars compared to Earth?
Someone did say, that waves would have been much higher but also much slower. Is this true? Does anyone have an animation where you can see a waive on Earth in comparsion to a wave on Mars?

Thanks
