    Because the M 2 tidal constituent dominates in most locations, the stage or phase of a tide, denoted by the time in hours after high water, is a useful concept. Tidal stage is also measured in degrees, with ° per tidal cycle. Lines of constant tidal phase are called cotidal lines, which are analogous to contour lines of constant altitude on topographical maps, and when plotted form a. vested with title to all lands within their boundaries that the tide ebbed and flowed over and to the beds of inland navigable waters. (Shivley v. Bowlby, ). With the adoption of the Federal Constitution, the states continued to own their tidelands and exercised authority over the lands and the waters beyond the.

And knowing how fast water is moving—and in what direction—is important for anyone involved in water-related activities.

      True tides—changes in water level caused by the gravitational forces of the sun and moon—do occur in a semi-diurnal (twice daily) pattern on the Great Lakes. Studies indicate that the Great Lakes spring tide, the largest tides caused by the combined forces of the sun and moon, is less than five centimeters in height.
