Bay of Fundy's famous tides

Posted May 22, 2008 8:21 a.m. EDT

Here's a cool video of the famous tides in the Bay of Fundy.

From Wikipedia:

"Oceanographers attribute it to tidal resonance resulting from a coincidence of timing: the time it takes a large wave to go from the mouth of the bay to the opposite end and back is the same as the time from one high tide to the next. During the 12.4 hour period, 115 billion tonnes of water traverses in and out of the bay."
