Card Set Information
Tides are ( ) and ( ) of sea level due to the ( ) efect of the Moon and the Sun.
Rise, fall, Gravity
The tidal effect of the ( ) on the ocean is higher than the effect of the ( ).
Forces involved in the formation of tidal bulges are ( ) of the Moon and the Sun, and ( ) force.
How many bulges of seawater are there due to the moon?
One bulge is always pointed towards and another to the opposite side of the ( ).
A graph of sea level versus time is called a ( )
When a point on the Earth passes under a bulge, a ( ) is observed at that coast.
A tidal day is about ( ) hours long.
Two equal high waters per day is call ( ) tidal pattern.
The time between two high waers is aout ( ) hours and ( ) minutes.
Rising sea level due to high water is called ( )
Tidal range is defined as ( ) - ( )
HW - LW
When the Sun, Earth, and the Moon make 90 Degrees, the tidal range is ( )
During Spring tides,the tidal range is ( ) due to the ( ) degree angle between Earth-Moon-Sun.
The tidal bulge on the Earth on the opposite side of the moon is caused by ( ) force.
The Moon revolves around the Earth in about ( ) days.
One day on the moon is about ( ) days on Earth.
The sea level at the Datum is ( ) feet.
The sea level at a coast depends on the ( ) of the moon and the sun, ( ) of the ocean basins, and the ( ) effect.
Position, Shape, Coriolis
When flood tide occurs along a narrowing river a leading wave, called tidal ( ), is formed.
The sea level rises and falls due to the Earth ( ) in and out of the seawater bulge.
MLLW stand for ( ).
Mean Lower Low Water
If the tidal range is high, the phas of the moon is either ( ) or ( ).
The most common tidal pattern is ( ), where there are 2 ( ) high- or low-waters a day.
Tidal amplitude depends on the ( ) of the moon, and sun, the ( ) of the ocean basin and ( ) effect.
Position, Shape, Coriolis
You noticed that the sea level has dropped dramaticalllt exposing many benthic animals. What is the most likely angle between the Sun, Earth and Moon?
The bulge of water that forms on the Earth opposite from the moon is caused due to extra ( ) force.
The tidal range is high during the Winterbecause the Earth ( ) to the Sun at that time.
The period of Ocean Tides on the Earth is in the time scale of ( ).
The ( ) of the ocean basins affects the tidal amplitude at a coast significantly.
During high tie, also known as ( ) tide, the Earth is moving into a tidal bulge.
Tidal ( ) is a one or more wave crests traveling upstream during high water.
If the sea level has not changed much during the day at a coast where high tidal ranges are common, then what is the most likely angle between the Sun, Earth, and Moon.
What is the approximate time difference bewteen a HW and the next LW.
6 Hours, 12 Mins
What is the approximate time difference between two HWs.
12 Hours, 25 Mins
