Tides in Lakes


Do other body's of water other than the oceans feel the effects of gravity in the form of high and low tides


Hi Roger,

Only the oceans span enough of the globe that tidal effects are noticeable. In the simplest way of thinking about it, only if the breadth of the body of water is a significant fraction of the distance to the Moon will there be tides.
