Finally, someone has written a comprehensive, easily readable
explanation of the tides on earth that is both simple enough for
students and solid enough for their professors. Step by step, by
analogy and illustration, Beyond the Moon describes how the
cyclical motion of the near solar system is impressed upon the
earth's oceans, and how the hydraulics over the continental shelf
and the geography of the coastline orchestrate this rhythm into the
bewildering variety of tide patterns seen around the globe. This
volume demystifies the complexity of the tides by systematically
examining its many constituents and demonstrates that: Nature is,
at once, awesome in complexity and beautiful in simplicity. "
