The tide and the Wadden Sea

In the Wadden Sea, the tide exposes and floods the seafloor twice daily. This phenomenon occurs because the earth, the moon and the sun influence each other, and is due to the different forces that affect the water in different directions. However, the moon’s contribution is the greatest.
