Tide Curve

Science / Tides and Currents / Tide Curve: A graphic representation of the rise and fall of the tide in which time is usually represented by the abscissa and height by the ordinate. For a semidiurnal tide with little diurnal inequality, the graphic representation approximates a cosine curve. See marigram.

Type Of Tide

Science / Tides and Currents / Type Of Tide: A classification based on characteristic forms of a tide curve. Qualitatively, when the two high waters and two low waters of each tidal day are approximately equal in height, the tide is said to be s MORE

Sequence Of Tide

Science / Tides and Currents / Sequence Of Tide: The order in which the four tides of a day occur, with special reference as to whether the higher high water immediately precedes or follows the lower low water. MORE

Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP)

Science / Genetics / Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP): Dna sequence variations that occur when a single nucleotide (a, t, c, or g) in the genome sequence is altered. MORE

Secondary Control Tide Station

Science / Tides and Currents / Secondary Control Tide Station: A tide station at which continuous observations have been made over a minimum period of 1 year but less than 19 years. The series is reduced by comparison with simultaneous observations from a primary MORE

Riding The Yield Curve

Business / Finance / Riding The Yield Curve: Buying long-term bonds in anticipation of capital gains as yields fall with the declining maturity of the bonds. 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
