How tidal is form?
Is your question Ocean tides? Tidal Waves? Well lets start with tides, tides is caused by gravational pull between two bodies this such as the moon and earth which cause a rise and fall in sea levels. Tidal waves on the other hand is a displacement of mass which causes energy. for example if you have an underwater land slid it displaces a volume of water inwhich creates a shock wave (energy). when this energy wave or displacement reaches shallow water the rise in water level will increase relulting in a tidal Wave.
