Lunisolar Tides

Science / Tides and Currents / Lunisolar Tides: Harmonic tidal constituents K1, and K2, which are derived partly from the development of the lunar tide and partly from the solar tide, the constituent speeds being the same in both cases. Also, the lunisolar synodic fortnightly constituent msf.

Reduction Of Tides

Science / Tides and Currents / Reduction Of Tides: A processing of observed tide or tidal current data to obtain mean values for tidal or tidal current constants. MORE

Red Tides

Science / Biology / Red Tides: Phenomenon associated with population explosions (blooms) of certain types of dinoflagellates; red structures inside the dinoflagellates cause the water to have a reddish color. MORE

Polynucleotides

Science / Biology / Polynucleotides: Long chains of nucleotides formed by chemical links between the sugar and phosphate groups. MORE

Solstitial Tides

Science / Tides and Currents / Solstitial Tides: Tides occurring near the times of the solstices. The tropic range may be expected to be especially large at these times. MORE

Spring Tides

Science / Marine Biology / Spring Tides: Fortnightly tides occurring when the vertical tidal range is maximal MORE

Tropic Tides

Science / Tides and Currents / Tropic Tides: Tides occurring semi-monthly when the effect of the Moon's maximum declination is greatest. At these times there is a tendency for an increase in the diurnal range. The tidal datums pertaining to the MORE
