Why is the ocean low?

One day, hitting the beach at low tide, do not rush to blame the island and surrounding ocean. Perpetrators are not "quality" of the ocean and the price of the resort, and the attraction of the moon and sun. We will not go into details, but just try to tell the tale.

Those Earthlings that reside or visit with the ocean, know that the water in the ocean rises and falls periodically. In this case it happens twice during the day, with an interval of about 12 hours and 25 minutes. The reason for this phenomenon, as indicated by the relatively long-Newton, often hiding the attraction of the Earth's natural satellite the moon. According to Newton's theory, gravity is the sum of the attractions of the individual particles of the Earth. Those particles that are closer to the Moon, more attracted to those that are farther away. The difference between the forces of gravity, which is called the "tidal force" leads to a deformation of the water shell of the Earth. Thus, it appears that on the side of the water shell of the Earth that faces the moon, and it is the opposite, the water rises, forming a tidal ledges, and there happens to burst, which accumulates excess water. Because of this, the water level in the "rear" part of the water shell is reduced, and there happens to ebb. As the Earth rotates on its axis, and the moon moves around the Earth, and tidal ledges move from east to west. The gap 12 hours 25 minutes, mentioned earlier, is calculated based on the fact that the moon orbits the Earth in 24 hours 50 minutes and two tidal ledges.

All of the above is fully applicable to the Moon and the Sun. The sun also attracts water shell of the Earth, thereby causing special flushing, which is 2.2 times weaker than the moon. When the new moon and full moon occur, the Sun, Moon and Earth are on the same line, and the tidal forces of moon and sun are at the same time. At such times the tides are especially strong. In normal days of Moon and Sun are "in discord."

Although the mechanism of the tides is complicated, to find out when the tide, and when the tide has now become easy. You can always take advantage of special calendar to see "schedule" the tides. That's one of those calendars for July.

Left stamped number and a specific day of the week of the month. On top of the time, which is just the period of 12 hours, the picture from 5 am to 6 pm. The figures in the table show the change in water level during the day. On any given day there is always the highest tides, which are marked by asterisks, respectively. If the difference between these values is small, then the water level will change slightly. But if the difference is large, the wave in the tide will be considerably less and considerably more in the tide. The calendar also highlights new moon days (*) and full moon (**).

In general, the high tide  and low tide  in its own way beautiful. At low tide you can watch all living creatures. For example, here's a crab.


Balinese people are usually caught in the tide of acne and looking for sea urchins, which, incidentally, inappropriate preparation, can be life-threatening.


On the beach at Jimbaran tide low can often be seen hunting for shells, which a lot after high tide. Of these, boil the soup.


If the day bright and sunny, you can see here a beautiful low tide.

In the low tide  and high tide  is sometimes impossible to recognize the same beach. Balanan Beach, one of the favorite places for surfers in the low tide and high tide is very different.

After high tide this beach is reach of shells.


Perhaps the biggest wave of tourist beaches on the Dreamland.


And the most frequent low tide situated in Jimbaran, where it is pleasant to walk along the coast, long sandy spit stretching.
And would  be the  high tide or low tide , gold and crimson sunsets of Bali will fascinate anyone. And sometimes it just nice to sit by the ocean and watch a quick three-minute drop in the ocean in the sun, rising at this moment somewhere on the other side of the earth ...
