Most other writers of the time believed that the Moskstraumen played an important role in the ocean circulation, but, given a large number of tales and lack of scientific observations, grossly overestimated the size and power of the phenomenon. One of the first scientific descriptions of the Moskstraumen was presented by the Norwegian priest and poet Petter Dass in his poem "The Trumpet of Nordland" which included a versified topographical description of northern Norway.
There he clearly related the whirlpool with tides by noting that it was the strongest at full and new Moon and the weakest at half-Moon. Dass' novel was however not translated into English and remained unknown in Europe. The relation of the Moskstraumen with the tides was further mentioned by A. Schelderup in an article which was likely written in the s and published in From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Compare that to the tidal range in Georgia, which is about 8 feet. People, as well as shores bird, coquina clams, and mile crabs, make use of the intertidal zone. Photo courtesy VisitNC. The large difference in tidal range between North Carolina and Georgia is due to the location of the two states in the South Atlantic Bight, a region that lies between Cape Hatteras and Cape Canaveral. It is shaped like an inverted V, with Georgia at the high point and Florida and North Carolina at the deeper ends. As the Earth rotates into the high tide bulge, the shallow continental shelf around Georgia causes the water to pile up faster and higher.
Ebb and Flow: Tides and Life on Our Once and Future Planet by Tom Koppel
A tidal range of 2 to 4 feet is typical for Florida and North Carolina. In some places, the tides move so much water that large waves, known as bores, are created. Why are tides important? A plethora of people and industries depend on tide predictions, including the shipping community, the military, cruise ships, ferry systems, and commercial and recreational fishermen, as well as engineers who design bridges and docks.
Of course, surfers and recreational boaters watch tides too.

Even educators base their field-trip schedules on tide predictions. Their adaptation to lunar rhythms and tidal cycles is the subject of continuing research. A tsunami is a large destructive wall of water that is created by volcanic eruptions, earthquakes or landslides that occur beneath the ocean. It has nothing to do with the tides. The tides are waves of water that rotate around the ocean basins that are created by the gravitational pull of the moon and sun.
