On April 19, 2018, Jörn Behrens presented a talk in the series "Wissen vom Fass" (Knowledge on tap). The title "Can you tame sea bears with mathematics?" (Kann man mit Mathematik Seebären zähmen?) revealed the true contents only to the knowledgable. In fact, "Seebär" has been used as a technical term for meteo-tsunamis in the North and Baltic Sea. So, in an enternaining 30 minute presentation, historic and current evidence of such events was covered as well as the physics and mathematics, describing the phenomenon and possibilities for early warning and mitigation.
