I am trying to create a sinusoidal model to simulate the sea as a fixed surface, but I'm not sure how to adapt a simple sinusoidal model so that the wave height and frequency varies within a range (more like the sea). I would change the range for varying sea states, but just need to see how to create a varying amplitude and frequency within a secified range.

Try something like this
t = linspace(-10,10,100);
[X,Y] = meshgrid(t);
f = (sin(X+Y)/2+0.5)*0.3+0.3; % frequency change between 0.3 to 0.6
A = (cos(X.*Y/3.5)/2+0.5)*0.3 + 0.7; % amplitude change between 0.7 to 1.0
Z = A.*sin(f.*X).*sin(f.*Y);
It have both variable frequency and amplitude between a specified range.
