Is water constantly moving on earth?

    Yes!  Because of the gravitational pull of the moon, water is constantly moving.  The pull makes the water bulge on the side of the earth that’s facing the moon, and sink on the other side.  We know this phenomena as tides, or as the rising and falling of water.

    Ocean water is constantly moving due to currents and tides. Groundwater, however, can have varying rates of motion, which depends on the size of the sediments and their porosity. Aquifers, which contain large stores of groundwater, may have layers of non-porous materials, called aquitards, that restrict the flow of water. Additionally, stagnant ponds of water are characterized by lack of movement.
