    Sep 13,  · Tides affect marine ecosystems by influencing the kinds of plants and animals that thrive in what is known as the intertidal zone—the area between high and low tide. Because the area is alternately covered and uncovered by the ocean throughout the day, plants and animals must be able to survive both underwater and out in the air and sunlight.

    Tides are the rise and fall of sea levels caused by the combined effects of the gravitational forces exerted by the Moon and the Sun, and the rotation of the Earth.. Tide tables can be used for any given locale to find the predicted times and amplitude (or "tidal range"). The predictions are influenced by many factors including the alignment of the Sun and Moon, the phase and amplitude of the.

    Jan 15,  · Tides The periodical rise and fall of the sea level, once or twice a day, mainly due to the attraction of the sun and the moon, is called a tide. Movement of water caused by meteorological effects (winds and atmospheric pressure changes) are called surges (storm surge during cyclones). The study of tides is very complex, spatially and temporally, as it has great variations in frequency.

    The period of the rotary tide waves is 12 hrs 25 min for semidiurnal tides and 24 hrs 50 min for diurnal tides. For an ocean of average depth (about to or 13, ft), a tide wave progresses as a shallow-water wave at about km ( mi) per hr. (As with wind generated water waves, this is the speed of the wave energy, not the water.).
