In brief: Mixed signals

Mixed signals between your eyes and your vestibular (balancing system) can cause seasickness while on a boat.
When you disembark, the same mixed signals cause a temporary swaying feeling when first on land. If nausea occurs, it is called land sickness. Most cases are short-lived.
