Re: "Meteor theory gets rocky ride from dinosaur expert"

But if you look at a paleogeographic map of the WIS, you
will note that the wave would strike most of the Interior coastline at a
small (glancing) angle.  This geographic alignment may have moderated the
horrific effects of the tsunami within the seaway.

It is likely that the shallow shelf across the southern WIS would also have caused the wave to break, thereby ameliorating its impact in the northern WIS.
