a Tsunami is only dangerous when you are close to shore with a ship, or on a beach for example sunbathing and whatever,,and then inland. At sea is the safest place to survive a tsunami,, the whole sea level rises,,which means,ships at sea don,t even feel that there is a Tsunami.

hi Cornelia

To some extent you have a very valid point, but I getting too (old/tired/above,fill in what you like) in such matters, fighting around for this. If a section can not be controlled impartial and as uploading member one is kind of on the short handle it makes not much sense to fight it openly. So I decided to stay away from the fight. Interesting though that it was that the real deleting started when I was becoming the single most uploader in numbers and in funnel section on the site and was by that seemingly in the way of the self promoting of the situation from the other side.
Of course I could now protest like crazy and such, or suggesting that ADM,s for a certain section should not upload in the very same section they virtually "police" (which is usually done very correct on this site) in order to avoid such situations, but it is all mute on the end and goes only the way of fighting and bad taste down the line.
So I keep uploading pictures I have and funnels go on my own site.

@ Phantom

I do not have a problem with only one good shot of a funnel
Imagine the Maersk funnel,,,rather popular how it would be when 200
funnel shots of just that logo would be on the site,, makes not much sense.
I concentrated usually on funnels which are rare,,like bulkers on the Mississippi River and such.
My point is more that some of mine got deleted in favor of another picture from a certain member, but when it was the other way around,,when mine was already there,,either it was also deleted or mine got on,,but the other stayed.
So no clear line,,just the way it favoured some and others not.
Have now my own funnel site,, where by now I have about 200 and have about 4-500 to upload
once I delete them here,,I upload there. That way the certain member can do what he wants,,fine with me.

you can see my site link in my profile and check it out.

@Phantom

not at all ,, It is me private because I consider uploading there as a waste of time for certain reasons where the webmaster is aware off
so,,,keep uploading them as per rules and enjoy it.

don,t upload there anyhow anymore for certain reasons started to delete already,,down from 400plus to 130 or so,,soon will be ZERO.. Not worthwhile to go through the trouble

I transited the canal more or less 30-40 times, I will miss it after retiring some time soon.
Not really looking fwd to transit the new canal anyhow,,,somehow the romantic/adventure to pass something "great" is gone by the widening and deepening.

@Tuomas
you seem missing the point
a figure 1-37cam leaves anything open,,in other words never mind what reality might be in one hundred years those scientists at that time can say,,you see our predecessors were already right.

I , as layman can also say than,,,1-150 cm,,and in 100 years hence,when it might be 30cm, I am heralded as a prophet. The gap 1-37cm is a rather wide gap...if they would say it will be 28-32,, I would say,,aha,,good scientific works,, when I see 1-37cm,,I don,t see any scientific work,,at least not good one

I,d guess that the main "wild" numbers and theorethical calculations a designed to increase
awareness,,, NOT to make peoples change but that wilder the numbers that more money grants flow from the governments and therefore keeping mostly research centers at Universities healthy and alive.
Whatever it is,,,a statement from " serious scentists that it can rise from 1-37cm is in my opinion not scientific but a shot into the blank.

That,s like that Hurricane predicter Prof Gray I think at the University of Arizona
he predicted one time the numbers of named storms correct and was 15 years and more a hero
until peoples realized it was pure luck. I predict since years between 13-18 named storms and I am 60-70 % right. Alas nobody called me expert or push government grants on me,,,guess I don,t sell myself too good :-((

A prediction as below,,that sea levels may rise from 1-37 cm,,,
any "idiot" can make a prediction like that
no wonder that nobody believes anything on this matter



Ice discharge from Antarctica could contribute up to 37 centimeters to the global sea level rise within this century, a new study shows. For the first time, an international team of scientists provide a comprehensive estimate on the full range of Antarctica's potential contribution to global sea level rise based on physical computer simulations. Led by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, the study combines a whole set of state-of-the-art climate models and observational data with various ice models.

The results reproduce Antarctica's recent contribution to sea level rise as observed by satellites in the last two decades and show that the ice continent could become the largest contributor to sea level rise much sooner than previously thought.

"If greenhouse gases continue to rise as before, ice discharge from Antarctica could raise the global ocean by an additional 1 to 37 centimeters in this century already," says lead author Anders Levermann. "Now this is a big range which is exactly why we call it a risk: Science needs to be clear about the uncertainty, so that decision makers at the coast and in coastal megacities like Shanghai or New York can consider the potential implications in their planning processes," says Levermann.
