Tides, Vectors, Scalars, Arctic Flushing, and Resonance

A brief look at why ignoring the direction of lunar tide forces is a bad idea, and why just looking at the size of the scalar portion is not the path to understanding. Continue reading

A Remarkable Lunar Paper and Numbers on Major Standstill

Times of Major Lunar Standstill are special. Very old data matters. The basic value of a computer simulation is to illustrate where our understanding is wrong so we can go back to that very old data and learn something new. It’s the Moon and Sun that matter most. Continue reading

The Moon’s Orbit is Wrong, It Can Change a Lot, And Tides Will Too

What we don’t know about time and tides, and the moon, could fill volumes. This is a bit we do know. It can make bigger tides than we know have, and that can change the global temperatures. This matters, and perhaps it has in the past, too. Continue reading

Arctic Standstill Tropical Saros

Are the polar weather cycles driven by the 18.6 year cycle of Lunar orbitals shifts? Are the poles marching to a N./S. tug from declination while the tropics are pulled by the alignment / eclipse Saros? In any case, the Moon looks to rule. Continue reading
