BANDA ACEH, PILING UP OF TSUNAMI WATERS
land channel linking two coasts created greater piling up of Tsunami
waters inland than along either coast. A similar, but not
identical, effect occurs with tides in the Bay of Fundy. Policy
makers of all sorts might be well-advised not to create channels with
man-made structures that could cause unintended consequences from the
piling up of water, air, or other naturally flowing substances.
