Bay of Fundy tides are considered a natural wonder with the Grand Canyon, Mount Everest and Niagara Falls. Although it's difficult to reach Mount Everest, many of us have seen Niagara Falls or the Grand Canyon. Unfortunately, few have seen, some of them have never heard of the famous Bay of Fundy tides. Located on the east coast of North America between the provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and the U.S. state of Maine, Bay of Fundy is the Atlantic Ocean and is 280 km long.
It is estimated that nearly 100 billion tonnes of water are withdrawn from the bay to the ocean twice a day, when it created the biggest surges in lume1 known until today. At the end of the bay, in Minas Basin, water withdrawal 16 meters. Imagine walking in deep water kayaking on the height of a building with five storeys and at the same place, over 6 hours you can walk on the ocean sand. The volume of water that moves in Fundy Bay is approximately equal to the volume of water that is poured on all world rivers ocean2 day. Ocean tides are defined as response to fluctuations in the cosmic forces of sun and moon and the earth's rotation. The me-die, tide raises and lowers the water level in oceans around the world with a meter and on the north coast of the Atlantic tide occur twice daily and water level increases and decreases by about 1.5-2 meters. Why the Bay of Fundy tides, however, get to reach 16 feet? It seems that the funnel-shaped bay and deep water makes water move in the same direction both in and outside the golf gulf, coast, boosting the force of water.
Bay of Fundy is considered a wonder of nature? Not only size but impressive tides and other natural phenomena caused by tidal makes him famous. Along the Gulf coast, the water has carved spectacular red rock carvings at the top of vegetation that grow where they are house various species of seabirds. You can admire the boat during the flow or on the sand at low tide. St. Martin's, tidal caves dug into the rock where they found shelter thousands of marine animals.
The most spectacular phenomenon is Reversing Falls in Saint John. There are waterfalls on the River Saint John before pouring into the bay. Twice a day when the flow comes, bay water is pushed on the river with such force that the river changes direction and flows in the opposite direction from rock falls. Another interesting phenomenon is happening in Chignecto Bay and Minas Basin, Bay of Fundy at the end. When the flow comes with power, water is pushed back on riverbeds flowing into the bay, Petitcodiac and Salmon rivers. For very narrow riverbeds and high waves are formed over a meter high and the water noise is frightening advance.
In addition to tides, the Bay of Fundy is known as a place where different species of whales (finback, humpback, Minke Whales and blue) and dolphins are a lot of fish for food. Some families live whales in the bay and some come every year to feed and multiply here.
