However, there were two phases, which could be due to reflection, i.e. two sets of s-waves offset from each other.  dunno.  
 
You have a symmetrically asymmetrical tub with the ledge at the one end.  It causes a wave all by itself just as a reef on the ocean floor does.  Then it rises, breaks, hits the back end for a backwash wave of a type that would not exist if the bottom of the tub was the same throughout.  And what is the alignment of the tub in relation to the shock wave, perpendicular or an oblique angle, etc.  And was the shock wave itself uniform or distorted ?  

What you do have is total chaos in regards to the waves present.  This situation is very similar to what we have up here in the Great Lakes, (especially Erie which is very shallow with an average depth of just 55 feet) with swells coming from multiple directions all at the same time, especially in storms.  What you saw in the tub is very similar to the wave action that took the Edmund Fitzgerald as it tried to approach and pass through a narrow strait in a brutal storm.  Waves reflecting off the banks interacting with wind driven waves from the storm.  IIRC the final analysis was waves coming from 5 different directions all at once.  And the bow and stern sitting atop the respective crests of two swells leaving the length of the hull out of the water and the weight unsupported a tad too long causing it to snap in half in the middle.  Storm waves on the GL's can get up to 50 feet at times, and are very irregular with the short fetches.

So you leave the door open to keep it well ventilated, then when the Tsunami is coming you discover that there is a nest of poisonous snakes in there...

Either that, you might find a big ship trying to tie off on your unit.

ha, look at that. 

mind you for some reason those look like that would immediately induce sea-sickness in 90% of the population.

Anyone want to front up the venture capital? You read it here first.

Tsunami zorbs, $200 a pop.

- maybe pop is not the best word to market these things.

I remember watching the other Fukushima tsunami on TV live with my family. We watched people running towards overpasses and other high ground - and then it dawned on us that they weren't fast enough. And they were gonna drown right now while we watched.

Easily one of the more disturbing things in recent memory.

One of the last earthquakes I remember from growing up in Cal happened while I was in the bath warming up from a long day of surfing.  A pretty good one and I nearly got seasick from the water moving around in the tub, and I never get / got seasick or motion sickness.  Pretty disorganizing.  The water in our swimming pool kept moving for at least another half an hour afterwards.

The other memorable one was a big roller.  Our house was situated at the top of a hill looking down at the ocean.  I actually saw the ground rise and fall just like an ocean wave as the shock wave went due south towards Laguna Beach, the next town south.  The were several waves kinda like the form of the Loch Ness Monster.

Here is my desktop.  The picture is from an exposed portion of the strata at the beach I grew up at just below our house and the soil composition of the land that these shock waves I mentioned above went rolling through.
