current

The environmental organisation detected radionuclides in zooplankton from the tidal currents which flush Mururoa's lagoon.

This twice daily peristalsis creates tidal currents every six hours, pushing sea water first north, then south.

It is very rarely still because of the strong tidal currents .

With the reversal of tidal currents deltas can be built up at both ends of the strait.

flat

From this apprenticeship to nature on tidal flats , I knew the strength of the environment in controlling cycles of marine life.

forces

Ultimately there is a direct contest between internal gravity and the tidal forces .

Any orbital eccentricity produced by the collapse must have been subsequently removed by tidal forces .

As such a singularity is approached, some physical quantities diverge and all observers feel unbounded tidal forces .

Another clue is tidal forces and the atmosphere.

Its relationship both to the Gaussian curvature of two-dimensional surfaces and to tidal forces is discussed.

Thus, tidal forces can lead to synchronous rotation.

Moreover, as their separation increases, tidal forces will also cause m to slow down to maintain its synchronous rotation.

There is therefore a fundamental link between the curvature of space-time and the existence of classical tidal forces .

power

Biofuels and wind power are regarded as the most promising technologies, along with small scale hydro and tidal power.

Also, tidal power generators must be designed to withstand severe wave action and the corrosive effects of seawater.

In furtherance of that, may I urge him to bend his considerable energies towards the development of solar and tidal power ?

The Department of Energy study of wave power did likewise, as did the report of Government tidal power study group.

There are also plans for a major tidal power system on the Severn Estuary and research is continuing into wave power systems.

Their movements are therefore highly predictable, which gives tidal power a distinct advantage over many other renewable energy forms.

range

However, deltas can be built in areas of larger tidal range provided that conditions 3 and 4 above are met.

Thus the optimum conditions for coastal terrace development would seem to be areas with small tidal ranges .

wave

She is suddenly engulfed by a tidal wave of self-loathing.

Atmospheric explosions will at best generate rather feeble tidal waves .

Just over half an hour later, the tidal wave swept up to the Over bridge on the outskirts of Gloucester.

Were this asteroid to hit an ocean, it would create massive tidal waves that would roar far inland on all continents.

On the other hand, thirteen percent hardly constituted the tidal wave of popular support that de Gaulle was looking for.

Her almost flat nose tended to widen at the nostrils, flaring over a tidal wave of a mouth.

The stunned production team were dealing with the tidal wave as best they could when an awful realization dawned.

One might as well try to measure how many grains of sand will be moved by a tidal wave .

EXAMPLES FROM CORPUS

Helena, but no one was on the beach on the side facing the tidal wave when it arrived.

Her almost flat nose tended to widen at the nostrils, flaring over a tidal wave of a mouth.

In furtherance of that, may I urge him to bend his considerable energies towards the development of solar and tidal power?

Studio heads and directors ignore the long list of artistic failures and succumb to the tidal pull.

The tidal lagoon would provide alternative feeding grounds for birds displaced from the bay by the impounded lake.

The stunned production team were dealing with the tidal wave as best they could when an awful realization dawned.

There is a tidal wave of youth crime, and the Government have not begun to answer it.
