The delay of the maximums
and minimums (high water and low tide) of the
tide in 1 or 2 days with
to the phases of the Moon, must be the at
heart oceanic water friction.
delay also can soon be seen day due first at
the time which the stars
giving a complete return take, and the
friction that generate the tides
to their amplitude.
The tide ranks (difference between
water and low tide)
are very different for both coasts of Costa
Rica, whose difference has
do with the marine bottom and the form in
which the tide in both ocean
oscillates. The tide rank average in our
Pacific Coast is of 2,80
and in the Caribbean of 0,30 meters.
