Title: How Tides Work.
Caption: This animation details how the lunar and tidal bulges interact over the course of a lunar cycle to create spring tides and neap tides. Two smaller animations depict the fluctuating tidal range affecting a boat at a specific point on Earth for the entire 29.5 days, and also a changing tidal chart.
