Features of the tide waves.

Feeding the tidal wave.

The tide is generated above all in the two areas of the spatioles.

The higher the compensation speed of the differences generated by the action of the Moon and Sun - in the water density, pressure, and levels - the larger the tidal basin, and the range of the tidal wave.

see: the field of action of a tidal wave.


The time taken by a tidal wave.

The time taken by a tidal wave, to go around the center of its basin, does not conform to its extension, but to the generation cadence, either diurnal, or semi-diurnal.
