Can you explain how to do this one?
• write a hypothesis to explain changes in water salinity in high latitude ocean regions
At high latitudes, thermocline is absent, thus salinity determines density.

Hey guys!

So, have any of you guys found any books/particular resources that are particularly helpful to study from for this event?

Oceanography is often times taught as a college class, so there are a bunch of lectures and textbooks out there to study from. If you just look up "introductory oceanography textbook" you'll get tons of good books.

Hi! I was taking a practice test and came upon this question:

If the high tide of a diurnal tide occurs at 10:00 AM on one day, when will the next high tide occur?
a. 10:25 P.M. the same day
b. 10:50 A.M. the next day
c. 10:00 A.M. the next day
d. 10:00 P.M. the same day
e. 10:25 A.M. the next day

Now, I know that 1 high and 1 low tide occur per day with a diurnal tide. So, it has a period of ~24 hours. This eliminates choices A and D. How do I choose between B, C, and E?
B.

Oh, thanks! So then, if the question asked about a semi-diurnal tide, would the answer be 10:25 PM the same day?

Can someone make a list of the formulas we need to know? It's my first time doing this event and States is in a few days. Thanks!
