Friday 1 JulyThe Tidal BulgesWhilst most explanations of the tides “it’s the moon’s gravitational attraction” are readily accepted by all, there’s a very significant issue that often causes a lot of confusion. The trouble is, the tidal bulge is not only on the side facing the moon ie. the water is not simply “pulled up” by the Moon – there’s a lot more going on!Booking link coming soon!
