QuestionAnswer
The periodic rise and fall of the ocean's surface caused by the gravitational force between Earth and the Moon and between Earth and the Sun Tides
Occurs when Earth, the Moon, and the Sun form a right angle, has the lowest tidal range Neap tide
The average level of the ocean's surface at any given time Sea level
A wave that forms when an ocean disturbance suddenly moves a large volume of water Tsunami
Occurs when Earth, the Moon, and the Sun form a straight line; has the largest tidal range Spring tide
The difference in water level between a high tide and a low tide Tidal range
The highest part of a wave Crest
The lowest part of a wave Trough
The vertical distance from the crest to crest or from trough to trough Wave height
The horizontal distance from crest to crest or from trough trough Wavelength
The currents formed by wind blowing over the surface of water Surface waves
The motion of the water particles in a wave is circular True
Waves generally transport water False
Define Breaker When a wave's base can no longer support the crest, and the wave collapses
How shallow does water need to be for a breaker to form Seashore shallow
What disturbances can causes a tsunami Underwater earthquake or landslides, a volcanic eruption, or even ice breaking away from a glacier.
What causes tides Gravitational force
Why does the largest tidal range occur during spring tides Gravitational pull on the ocean is strongest when the two forces act together
Why does a neap tide have the lowest tidal range Gravitational pull act against each other
The average level of the ocean's surface at any given time Sea level
The difference in water level between a high tide and a low tide Tidal range
A tide that has the largest tidal range Spring tide
A tide that has the lowest tidal range Neap tide
The _____ distance between the crest and the trough of a wave is the wave height Vertical
_____ are the periodic rise and fall of the ocean's surface caused by the _______ force between Earth and the Moon and between Earth and the Sun Tides and Gravitational
