This site uses text and photos to explain how the physical characteristics of the Bay of Fundy create the unique tides that occur there. It also explains how the extreme tides affect nutrient cycling and plankton in the Bay, mudflats, and salt marshes. A static 3D map shows the areal extent of the Bay and an interactive 3D map explains the concept of vertical exaggeration. A short movie shows real ... Full description.
