Following up on our discussion on Lovells Island yesterday.

For a brief explanation of what causes tides, visit this site at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute

For a more complete look at tides, check out the National Oceanic and and Atmospheric Administration's site as well.

For those of you who are still believe that the sinks drain differently in the Southern Hemisphere than in the Northern Hemisphere, please visit this site maintained by the Library of Congress

You can also find a pretty good discussion of the Coriolis effect at Wikipedia as well.

By my count, three of you owe me a total of $1.00 and two free lunches.
