You look at that and compare to the dynamics of sloshing and can see similarities. Why has no one looked at the math of sloshing ?


>I thought you posted a 3D animation recently. You also had some tdal gauge plots.


Somebody made up this ridiculous fake plot "showing" how much the sea level rises around the Philippines that I pinched:

This is not 3D but is a numerical solution of the sloshing equation

This shows the surface and the subsurface computational mesh.
