Abstract :

The Paper begins with a detailed historical aspect on Tides. The Physics of Tides is extensively dealt with classification of different types of tides. Mathematical theory of tides giving a derivation for the velocity of tidal wave. The Laplace Tidal Equation has been briefly dealt with. The effects of tides with special attention to Rotation of Earth form a major part of the Paper. A personal observation of the author in the drowning of swimmers during low tides is added by a free hand diagram. The author, even though, has not referred any standard text book, the matter in the paper forms almost a chapter or at least a major topic in Geophysics.
