Re: Wave stuff

Good stuff, Langdon. Those long period cross-Pacific waves are what make Hawaiian and Californian waves so big and fast.

wave height calculator https://planetcalc.com/4442/

wave height and period https://csherwood-usgs.github.io/jsed/Fetch and Depth Limited Waves, USGS.html

Assuming the 5.5 miles from the Tidwell to Aqualand*, we get short, close chop.

*Remember where I said the swell can be found? It's one of the longest straight line you can make on Lanier on a westish wind.

Re: Wave stuff

I am going to try the "swell" South of VP. I am not crazy about the subterrain induced swell that is WNW of VP.

Works both ways doesn't it.....probably helps the wind too......

What happens in a black hole stays in a black hole.
