Short summary
Tsunami and other water waves such as storm surges get amplified as they approach the coast due to shoaling. The underlying physics are guided by energy conservation, but there are several aspects of this phenomenon that are still active research topics. Resonance is one. As waves reflect from the coast, resonance can hinder the efficiency of the reflection by trapping some of the energy in the coastal region. We investigate this phenomenon by taking the bathymetry and bay shape into account.
