What happens at high tide

Anonymous

Answer


Serena Pietz

High tide: When the sun & the moon are lined up with the earth, they have a great gravitational pull on the earth. When this happens, it causes the water to be pulled away from the earth. The highest and lowest tides happen every two weeks during the full moon and new moon because the gravitational force of both the moon and the sun are pulling on the ocean water.
