During the lunar month there are 2 so-called spring tides when the Moon and Sun align so their tidal effects sum up. The above hypothesis would imply more stormy rainy weather with the spring tides. Another effect is the precession of the lunar orbit with a timescale of about 18 years. This actually changes the inclination of the Moon in the sky, effectively moving the tidal bulge to a more or less northerly position.
A lunar nodal cycle in all time-series indicates that there is a forced Arctic oscillating system controlled by the pull of gravity from the moon, a system that influences long-term fluctuations in the extent of Arctic ice.

Welcome to our planet sir!
As Earthling's, we are taught what you just learned in something we call school. Usually this knowledge is gained in 5th or 6th grade(10-12 yr old) on our planet..
Not all inhabitants of this planet are as friendly as myself, but I would gladly help you with some other questions you may have about our home. Maybe you wish to know why the sky is blue(except for the obvious chemtrails) or why the grass is green?
Once again, welcome to our planet and please enjoy your stay!edit on 8-1-2014 by freedom12 because: (no reason given)
