Tides At any time on earth there are 2 high tides and 2 low tides, each directly across from each other, as shown in the diagram above. In this diagram, (from Physics for a modern world 1986), points 1 and 2 are at high tide and points 3 and 4 are at low tide. The force of the moon on the earth complies with normal laws of gravity.
Tides are the twice-daily rising and falling of the ocean at the shores of continents and islands. Over an approximately 12-hour cycle the tide in a locality flows out to low tide (ebb tide) and flows in to high tide (flood tide). The cycle is repeated again over the next 12 hours so that each day and each night there is a high and a low tide.
Because our Earth rotates under these bulges, any given point on the surface will have two high tides and two low tides per rotation (approximately). The sun also effects the earth's tides. Particularly high tides happen when the sun and the moon are lined up with the earth at new and full stages of the moon. These tides are called spring tides.
The rise and fall of seawater due to gravitational forces (centripetal) of the sun and the moon are called tides. The sea waves generated by tides are called tidal waves.The rise of seawater and its movement towards the coast is called tide and the resultant high water level is known as high tidewater.high tidewater.
In most of the world, the time between high and low tide is consistent, approximately 12 hours and 25 minutes, which is why the high and low tides seem to advance by an hour each morning and evening, but low tide is not always half way between them. In some places the flood tide rises quickly after a long period of several hours of low water.
When the water reaches its lowest point, it is low tide. Tides are caused by the interaction of Earth, the moon, and the sun. Neap Tides In between spring tides, at the first and third quarters of the moon, the sun and moon pull at right angles to each other. This line-up produces a neap tide, a tide with the least difference between low and high tide. During a neap tide, the sun’s gravity.Learn More

This paper examines the topic of ocean tides, the periodic rise and fall of the ocean waters due to the gravitational pull of the moon and the sun on the surface of the earth. It looks at what causes tides, what are high and low tides, the different types of tides, the phenomenon of tidal currents and waves, the effect of tides on the coastlines and on fishing and how tides can be harnessed.Learn More
The time between high and low tides is a little over 6 hours and the entire tidal cycle repeats itself approximately fifty minutes later each day. So if you know that low tide is at 0800 today you can estimate that it will be at least 0850 tomorrow. The tidal bulge that occurs during high tide in the world ocean follows the revolution of the moon and the earth rotates eastward through the.Learn More
Spring tides have higher high tides and lower low tides whereas neap tides have lower high tides and higher low tides. Hence, the range (difference in water level between high and low tide) is much larger in a spring tide than in a low tide. The diagram shows the ideal sinusoids of both spring and neap tides.Learn More
It is also interesting to know that in a single day, the ocean normally witnesses a series of two low tides and two high tides. During a full moon or a new moon, a spring tide (a very strong tide) will occur because of the alignment of the planet to the sun and moon. A neap tide (the weak tide) happens when the lunar and solar gravitational forces are perpendicular to each other. This.Learn More

Excerpt from Essay: High Context And Low Context Cultures High-context cultures are the type of cultures where their rules of communication are transmitted through the elements such as body language, the tone of voice and person's status.(Guffey, 2009). Contrarily, low context cultures communicate information through rules and languages, which are explicitly spelled out.Learn More
The tides in this case are known as neap tides. The neap high tide produces the lowest high tide and the neap low tide produces the highest low tide. The nature of tides In most places, tides are semidiurnal, meaning there are two tidal cycles each day (a tidal cycle is one high and one low tide). The high water level reached during one of the.Learn More

Spring tides: A tide in which the difference between high and low tide is the greatest. Spring tides occur when the moon is either new or full, and the sun, the moon, and the Earth are aligned. The gravitational pull of the sun is 'added' to the gravitational pull of the moon on Earth, causing the oceans to bulge a bit more than usual. This means that high tides are a little higher and low.Learn More
