    It would obviously stop growing at some point.There is its own weight that would have a bearing on how high the wave could get. There is the speed of the wind, the radius of the planet ,the depth of the surface liquid,its viscosity,the density of the atmosphere ....

    If the wave circled the planet (as it would) it would run into other waves and their heights would either add or subtract.(think that may be called constructive versus destructive interference)

    The discussion you alluded to on the physics subforum (the one started by Yonathon Yeager?)seems a nice one . Hopefully we will have a few more if the forum maintains its rehabilitation from its latterday doldrums.

    Supposedly, Trump allegedly committed tax evasion. I wonder if he will face prison time when he leaves office.

    All that belongs to human understanding, in this deep ignorance and obscurity, is to be skeptical, or at least cautious; and not to admit of any hypothesis, whatsoever; much less, of any which is supported by no appearance of probability...Hume

    Know anybody on this list? Don't have to read it all as it's quite extensive but you might have to worry a little. A lot of retractions noted, apparently from various peer reviewers. Kind of makes me wonder about the peer review process....those peer reviewers should be on the list just for handing out citations, now known as mistakes. Ah but I guess science has its own problems.
