Description


Hugh Aldersey-Williams: The Tide

From Newton to the Norfolk Coast

Norfolk based author and journalist, Hugh Aldersey-Williams, explores our scientific understanding of the tides, and how they have shaped commerce, war, art and literature as well as our ever-changing coasts.

Along the way, we travel from some of the greatest names of antiquity, such as Aristotle and Alexander the Great, via the Venerable Bede and St Thomas Aquinas, to the modern science of Galileo, Newton and others.

Hugh's latest book also explores how tide prediction has grown ever more accurate, nowadays incorporating dozens of astronomical variables to generate data far more accurate than any mariner will need — data that is now being used to reveal important information about globally rising sea levels.
