Gravity is the key to the Earth's rising and falling tides. The combined gravitational effects of the Sun and the Moon constantly pull the world's oceans in different directions and create tidal effects. But there are several other factors that complicate this basic process. Friction, the Earth's rotation, the tilt of its axis and the gravitational pull given off by the Sun and Moon that affects Earth's atmosphere. These forces together conspire to make our planet's oceans into a battleground. These forces tug the oceans this way and that way around the globe, thus creating high tides and low tides.  I hope that helps as it is a condensed version of a long explanation;okay sweetie?  ‚ô•Nassy
