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

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

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

Perigean Tides Or Tidal Currents

Science / Tides and Currents / Perigean Tides Or Tidal Currents: Tides of increased range or tidal currents of increased speed occurring monthly as the result of the Moon being in perigee. The perigean range (Pn) of tide is the average range occurring at the time o MORE

Spring Tides

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