Re: High and low tide England
twice a day, like everywhere else in the world.
Not sure about Florida, but I know places like the Med, the tide can be measured in a few CM
Some parts of the world have two high tides and two low tides (semi-diurnal). Others have one high and one low (diurnal).
You are right the Med has very little tidal range. I have not been in tidal situations in Florida. The Bahamas (Abacos) has a range of about 3 feet.
