nothing like the ocean water. dielectric effects is amplified with salt water

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. These minor variations are masked by the greater fluctuations in lake levels produced by wind and barometric pressure changes.

Consequently, the Great Lakes are considered to be non-tidal.

5 cm.. yeah, the people are really laughing hard on east and west side as they lose their boats to the 5cm rise in water... lol.

and twice a day? how does that work? if the moon causes it.. then how does it do it when it isn't there?

what little you know about tides. they happen about every twelve hours.

and apparently, which is new to me, the sun has a tide that is equal to the moon.

so the sun and the moon are exactly the same size (watch an eclipse) and have the same tidal effect as each other.

you don't find that a little interesting?

another interesting fact, our sky has neon in it... a ton.. and electromagnetic energy just happens to make it light up, which the sun is known to have... I found this video very interested...

lol. of all the things i think our government lies about... the lack of a tide in the great lakes ain't one of them.
