Wave Probe Measurements
I have set up a 2D wave tank to simulate water waves using a flap type wave-maker. At a number of points in the tank, I wish to measure the changing wave height over time. Monitor points only monitor a fixed point and hence can only tell me if the point is submerged or above the water’s surface. Any suggestions?

If you define a surface you can get the wetted area from areaInt(Water Vol Fraction)@Surface Name. You can get depth from this.
