Short summary
Bays and harbors naturally resonate with standing waves, known as seiches. Seiches are usually considered temporary, however, we identify small-amplitude, continuously present seiches in six bays around the Pacific and suggest that tidally forced, continental shelf resonances are a primary driver of continuous seiches.
