Red Bull just taught me some science and geography today - Villa Epecuen, destroyed by the results of a seiche, or standing wave. 1985 in Argentina, such a standing wave destroyed a dam that then flooded the salt lake next to a resort town that had to be abandoned. Now Epecuen is all ruins, perfect for a surreal mountain bike ride
More educational than cool - I had no idea that this has been going on at this level throughout most of my lifetime. No wonder people saw this from Whitney on occasion. It was a frequent event in the 50s and 60s.
