I recently did some research on waves and I came across these interesting Youtube videos. Waves are a fascinating phenomena and these videos capture that amazement.
I love how this video quickly escalates from digging a hilliness path to a full-blown wave machine. My only concern is if they're connecting a freshwater river to saltwater because it could kill the organisms in the river.
I've simulated a standing wave in small containers, but seeing it at this scale is amazing. To learn more about clapotis or standing waves, check out this informative video.

"The largest climate demonstration in U.S. history is happening on February 17th on the National Mall in D.C"
Published on Feb 10, 2013
I got this email the other day from the Chesapeake Climate Action Network and I wanted to spread awareness on a massive rally about the Keystone Pipeline.
The largest climate demonstration in U.S. history is happening on February 17th on the National Mall in D.C. -- and I hope you'll join us there. This is a big one -- not just numerically, but strategically. On Presidents' Day weekend, tens of thousands of people will come together to call on President Obama to move our country forward on climate in his second term -- beginning with decisive action to reject the Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline. As this is written, close to 25,000 people have already signed up. Will you join them?”
The goal of the rally is to counteract the fossil fuel industry’s pressure on President Obama and ask him to reject the measure. In this post Mary Anne Hitt from the Sierra Club proposes a plan that takes action on climate disruption and clean energy. One of her points is to hold fossil fuel corporations accountable for coal pollution. This campaign advises the establishment of stringent water pollution standards for carbon, smog, and coal ash degrade water quality.
