Tide

In technical analysis, an informal term for a security's performance over a long period of time, usually over a year or more. Analysts look for cyclical behavior in a security to interpret the tide properly; that is, if a long-term bull market is observed with a bad trading day in a certain week, an analyst might view the short-term trend as moderately bearish without detracting from the long-term bullish tide. The term was coined by Robert Rhea. See also: Ripple, Wave.

The net exchange of suspended sediment for both inflowing and outflowing water through the middle estuary at Wardell remains the same during the fortnightly tidal cycle in the dry season.
Another alternative explanation for the summer larval immigration is that larvae may take advantage of a distinct annual tidal cycle produced in summer every year as a result of the interaction of the periods of the diel vertical migration and the tidal constituent ([S.
Tidal cycles have been known for centuries, says Keeling, but most scientists assumed that such transient events couldn't influence climate.
2004) found that peak vertical migration bouts corresponded to rates of decrease in hydrostatic pressure during ebb tide, the cue for re-entrainment of the endogenous rhythm could be the tidal cycle in hydrostatic pressure associated with changes in water depth as has been found for other marine animals (Palmer 1995).
The change in tidal transmural pressure--correlated with but not identical to the plateau minus PEEP difference, or "driving pressure"--is likely to be as important as the maximal trans-alveolar pressure encountered in tidal cycle.
the time of high tide = 0[degrees]; a complete semidiurnal tidal cycle = 360[degrees]; and 1 h = 29[degrees]).
Quite apart from the choice of tidal cycle, this lack of standardization bedevils tidal boundary issues on national and international scales.
The mean current magnitude is dependent on the ratio of the width of the sloping region to the distance that a particle travels in half a tidal cycle (the tidal excursion, approximately 14 kilometers for a tide of 1 meter per second), and is strongest when these two length scales match.
At one stage in the tidal cycle, the movement of the outgoing salty water causes fluctuations in the position of the temperature gradient of the water, releasing the series of internal waves that move to the east.
No matter what point during the tidal cycle a hurricane hits, it will always be near mean water level.
e technology, destined for deployment in larger oshore tidal turbine arrays, was exposed to the full range of power output and aggressive loadings it would experience subsea, securing performance data equivalent to over 18 years of operation in some of the world's harshest tidal cycles.
Oyster bars are formed when there's just the exact mix of fresh and saltwater needed for the bivalves to flourish, and their rough surfaces provide shelter for crustaceans and small fish throughout most tidal cycles.
