Earth tide (also known as solid Earth tide, crustal tide, body tide, bodily tide or land tide) is the displacement of the solid earth's surface caused by the gravity of the Moon and Sun. Its main component has meter-level amplitude at periods of about 12 hours and longer. The largest body tide constituents are semi-diurnal, but there are also significant diurnal, semi-annual, and fortnightly contributions.

Around each new moon and full moon, the sun, Earth, and moon arrange themselves more or less along a line in space. Then the pull on the tides increases, because the gravity of the sun reinforces the moon’s gravity. In fact, the height of the average solar tide is about 50 percent of the average lunar tide. Thus, at new moon or full moon, the tide’s range is at its maximum.

The gravitational pull of the Moon and the Sun makes the water in the oceans bulge, causing a continuous change between high and low tide. At New Moon and Full Moon the gravitational force of the Sun and the Moon act together and create spring tides. Tides are one of the most reliable phenomena in the world, and we know that they move in and out around twice a day, but not exactly. So, why is that? A day on Earth is the time it takes our planet to spin once around its own axis and return to the same point under the Sun. This is known as a solar day, and it lasts around 24 hours.

At night, too, with the radiance of the moon makinga pathway of silver across the gentle swell of the sleepy surf, hewould doubtless wonder at their continued idle life as he watched thetwo surfmen separate and begin their walk up and down the beach radiantin the moonlight. But he would change his mind should he chance upon anorth-easterly gale, the sea a froth in which no boat could live, theslant of a sou'wester the only protection against the cruel lash of thewind.
