What causes larger or smaller tide swings?



  1. 0 Votes

    It is the gravitational attraction of the sun and moon, and the motion of the earth that causes the tides. Large or small tide swings depend on the height of the tide and its fluctuation in time depending on the location of the sun and moon, and to the details of the shape of the beach, coastline, depth, and prevailing currents. Tide fluctuations that tend to be greater in some areas are because the sun or moon pulls/twists on the oceans. Depending on the given shape of the earth, orbits, and the earth’s tilted axis, a tidal swing is created and flows around specific points.
