Professor Brian Cox explains our Earth and Moon’s gravitational relationship for tides in this video.
UK Tides vary from day to day both in their timing and height. The tides at a particular location are the result of the gravitational influences between the Earth, the Moon and the Sun coupled with the effects of Earth rotation and the depths of local oceans, seas and estuaries. The orbital details of the Earth, Moon and Sun and the relationships between them are known with a high degree of accuracy. In addition to orbital information, tide prediction requires information (known as tidal constants) derived from an analysis of tides over a long period of time.
Tides are not only very important for people working on the sea but also for leisure users from sailors to powerboaters. Understanding how tides can affect you day to day is crucial and essential for those taking an RYA Training course or RYA Powerboat Training Courses.
