  • Scapa Flow
    By Beda von Berchem

  • The So-Called "Tidal Wave"
    By H. A. Marmer, U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey

    The so-called tidal wave, which at times devastates coastal regions, is in reality a misnomer, for it is in no way related to the tide. The tide is brought about by the action of the tide-producing forces of sun and moon; the tidal wave is due to...
