Tidal theory The word "tides" is a generic term used to define the alternating rise and fall in sea level with respect to the land, produced, in part, by the gravitational attraction of the moon and sun. There are additional nonastronomical factors influencing local heights and times of tides such as configuration of the coastline, depth of the water, ocean-floor topography, and other hydrographic and meteorological influences, pdf file

Tides: lunar tides The tides at a given place in the Earth's oceans occur about an hour later each day. Since the Moon passes overhead about an hour later each day, it was long suspected that the Moon was associated with tides. Newton's Law of Gravitation provided a quantitative understanding of that association
Tides: misconceptions about tides
Tides: oceanography lecture notes
Tides: ocean tides
Tides: ocean tides an ocean tide refers to the cyclic rise and fall of seawater. Tides are caused by slight variations in gravitational attraction between the Earth and the moon and the sun in geometric relationship with locations on the Earth's surface. Tides are periodic primarily because of the cyclical influence of the Earth's rotation
Tides Online High Water Condition
Tides: the physics of tides the tides vary along the shores of the oceans of the earth with a period of about 12.5 hours
Types of Tides and Tidal Currents At most places on earth, there are two high tides and two low tides a day. They follow a cycle that coincides with the 24- hour 50- minute lunar day, the time it takes earth to make one, pdf file
