Definition of Shoaling:
Shoaling is the deformation of the waves, which starts when the water depth becomes less than about half the wavelength. The shoaling causes a reduction in the wave propagation velocity as well as shortening and steeping of the waves.
This is the common definition for Shoaling, other definitions can be discussed in the article
