Thats minus the continental shelf variables as the tsunami reaches shore too dude. Its incredible. I did a humanitarian mission to yosuka during the Fukushima meltdown following the tsunami. I seen some wild places in my day but that was one of the wildest to witness.
The force of the small wavelength of impact at sea builds against the continental shelf of the landmass it encounters causing the wave to build. Its speed is slow its mass of water is great. The energy of the impact created by the asteroid isn't an issue until its energy builds on the continental shelf. Anyway ill shutup thats what I'm trying to share tho. Its reverse in that case the mass of the ocean and rise over run allows the relatively medium amount of energy from the asteroid at sea to become a huge wall of water. It is gnarly.
Like where as a rifle bullet relies on velocity not mass. The tsunami and ballistics is like that equation darci is saying like that just opposite . I'm done I just thought it was cool as f u guys know wsup.
I say that in a kind of nutshell tho. There are many underwater topography variables to be considered before bringing E=1/2mv^2 into an asteroid impact at sea and how it plays out when it reaches shore. But I'm just sayin yea quickly it is a good way to observe a tsunami impact. I always enjoy these threads. I need to get back to the what is reality thread but avoid it because ill likely speak too much. Nice thread tho guys I enjoy it!
