What can I do?
About this resource...
I chose to study tides as my project during the summer of 2000 while I was at the Maryland Summer Science Center Horsehead Wetlands Program. One of the teachers there introduced the subject of tides to me and I found it very interesting. I have attended this camp for three years now and have learned that the marsh floods once a month, due to high tides. I had never gotten to experience this before and I thought it would interesting to see. The last day we came to the marsh it happened. One day we came to a marsh where there was practically dry land and the next day the water flooded up to our knees in the same marsh! This made me sure that tides would be my project.This research project concerns two factors that affect tidal level. These factors are moon phase and wind direction; they will be tested to see if they have any affect upon the high tide mark in the Chesapeake Bay. Tides are the daily rise and fall of the oceans, bays, streams, rivers, etc. The usual frequency of tides is two high tides and two low tides daily. The lowest level of water is defined, as the "low tide water mark" while the highest water level is the "high tide water mark".This project will have two s. The s will be: "Is the high tidal level of the Chesapeake Bay affected by moon phases?" and "Is the high tidal level of the Chesapeake Bay affected by of wind direction?" Both s will be researched by going onto an Internet site that records oceanographic and wind data such as tidal level and wind direction. Using a calendar that is marked with the full and new moons, the moon phases can be identified.
