Maupiti and Solar Tides

Did you know that some places are relatively unaffected by lunar tides but seriously affected by solar tides?

I (Livia) wrote an article that appeared in a recent issue of Ocean Navigator on the application of solar tide knowledge to navigating passes in the places like Maupiti, French Polynesia. You can read the article online here.

Thanks to Michelle on SV Cheers who first told me about the topic.
