The phase of the moon affects the height of the tides: when the moon is full or new, tides are greater (this is called a "spring tide"). When the moon is in the first or third quarter (half full), the tides are smaller ("neap tide")
• Note the Lunar Phase in the upper right corner, and how it affects the height of the tide on the graph.
In Massachusetts, sea level is projected to rise between 1.3 and 3.1 feet (0.4 - 0.9 m) by 2050, and between 4 and 10 feet (1.2 - 3.0 m) by 2100.
• Increase Sea Level Rise by 1.5 m in the bottom slider. How does this affect the tide? What happens if you add a storm?
