Hi all!

Suppose I have a 2D tank partially filled with a liquid. I shake the tank, the liquid oscillates up and down. In OpenFOAM 6, is there a way to track the Calpha value of 0.5 (interface) at a specified location, say x=0, and have it recorded with each time stamp? I can do this in paraView, but am thinking there has to be a better way. Picture below for your reference.

Thanks so much!
