    Hi,

    I was reading some folks talking on a forum recently about tidal waves. And one guy...

    thought you could get a form of tidal wave in some rivers? No one really had an answer. I hadn't heard of this either, presuming like the majority of people I would think, that tidal waves manifest in the sea. Is there such a thing as a river tidal wave?

    Hi,

    You learn something everyday - I thought the answer to this  might have been 'no'. Many thanks.

    (albeit einstein reincarnated)@simeonevisser is your IQ 230 like mine  nice answer but one things is for sure elliptical path taking by the earth round the sun (though at a slow velocity) and also its axial rotation and some slight sea floor earthquakes could cause tidal waves.
