Has anyone had experience with modeling coral surface areas from
I have maximum width, the width perpendicular to maximum width, and
height. I want to assume that the horizontal plane is an ellipsoid,
which is no problem, but I am having trouble locating a formula that
will produce a 3-D mound from the ellipsoid. In the end I want
surface area of the mound.
