Tsunami model?

Filed under: Letters from Ionia — Tags: — zankaon @ 12:42 am

Might any delayed tsunami be due to saucer sloshing effect? That is, if the sea bottom (saucer) vibrates, then water first sloshes towards the more open oceanic side, and then secondarily in part sloshes back towards land; hence accounting for the delay? Might damped oscillations of full thickness deformation of manifold describe that part of wave that continues outward? Might hydrodynamic simulations be of help? Might neither an ocean volume changing effect (i.e. sea floor change), nor an impulse effect be necessitated for such mechanism of tsunami generation and delayed effect? TMM
