We often get attracted to spending time near the shoreline to watch the finest beauty of blue-green tides that beat the coast in a rhythm. When we think about tides, the calm beauty of the moon also illuminates our minds. But other than the mesmerizing beauty, tides have a scientific side too. And many a time, we attach a lot of illusions with facts. Have you always believed that a full moon causes higher tides? Can tides explain the process of spaghettification (getting stretched in a black hole where the gravity is highly intense)? Are there any threats associated with tides? How can tides help save the planet? Just like the ocean, the science of tides is deep. They are more than the regular rise and fall of ocean water. Explore their working, threats, and beauty in this module.
