I'm bloody well going to get sloshed, buzzed and somewhere float.

The sloshing induced shearing motions might also generate mixing of the ∼1 keV gas with the ambient ICM at large radii.
Feedback under the microscope II: heating, gas uplift, and mixing in the nearest cluster core
In axisymmetric (2D) studies of the pure SASI (without neutrinos), many witnessed a vigorous dipolar ((cid:96) = 1) “sloshing” mode that superficially seems like the corresponding sloshing motion seen in full 2D radiation/hydro simulations.
Perspectives on Core-Collapse Supernova Theory
Possibly the edges may arise from moving cold gas clouds that are the remnants of merger activity as observed in A2142 and A3667 or as oscillations (or “sloshing”) of the cool gas at the center of the cluster potential as observed in A1795 .
Chandra Observations of the Components of Clusters, Groups, and Galaxies and their Interactions
We speculate that, as these halos move, the varying gravitational potential could accelerate the cool dense gas that has accumulated in the cluster core and could produce the “sloshing” needed to give rise to the multiple surface brightness edges observed in some clusters.

As a result, the sloshing modes can make only a small contribution to the GW emission.

Precision Measurements of Collective Oscillations in the BEC-BCS Crossover
The experimental results in Fig. 1 demonstrate the sloshing with a beat between the two eigenmodes. A careful analysis of such data allows us to determine the eigenfrequencies ωx (horizontal sloshing) and ωy (vertical sloshing) to within a relative uncertainty of typically 2 × 10−3 .
