Further Investigations: Tidal Patterns and Currents

  1. Investigate rivers with tidal bores and compare them to rivers without tidal bores. What kinds of geographic features seem to create tidal bores?
  2. Choose two coastal cities, one near you or in a place you would like to visit, and one in a different country at a similar latitude. Compare tide charts and patterns from these cities. Why do you think the tides in these cities are similar or different?
